My very first day in Watamu coast was one of wind and rain. As weather forecast had predicted such conditions for the whole three-day stay, seeing those heavy and threatening clouds made my hopes slowly fade away. But since I firmly believe in the law of attraction, I forced myself to think positive in order to somehow influence the atmosphere and, in a totally unintented marketing gimmick, you will find out soon in the coming images whether my theory worked or not.
The fisherman’s journey to the deep sea waters.
After I got off the bus from Mombasa, I bought myself a boat ticket to the deep waters with the local fishermen. Mshipaji, the fisherman kept telling me these wonderful stories about the nature of the trip on the region’s southeastern coast from where it’s easy to visit the unknown unending reefs.
Going out to meet the wonders of his journey by the lagoon Kikambala.
Once in Watamu, I took the scenic walk towards the shoreline to get the fisherman and the rest of his crew. It was time again for me to reflect on what I think are my best pieces of works in the starting months of 2013. These are the photos that have special meaning to me in some way, either the exhilaration of being there and seeing the vista/subject in front of me and bringing home the memory in the photo, or being touched by the composition in some way.
Inspirational anchor. The role of the anchor making its statement at the coastal waters.
This has been a photo journey from my walk, enjoy the tour and stay tuned for more pictures and words from my earlier and future trips!
