Week 9 - Artistic Shadows

The opposite of light is dark, the absence of light is shadow. Interpret this into a masterpiece. At least that was what I was supposed to come up with.

Dogwood week nine 9/52 - Artistic Shadows. This week was too hard, best I could come up with. #dogwood52 #dogwoodweek9 #canon100d

Week 7 - Portrait: Faceless

Tell a story without showing the face, pretty hard challenge this one. This was taken at the Waterfalls Inn in Tigoni, decent place to visit if you can overlook the KES 300 charge. There is a nice waterfall and picnic area. The place seems to be past its glory days as the restaurant wasn't open and some of the structures seem quite dated, however if you can overlook that you will be greeted by awesome views of team farms and Nairobi city in the distance.

The interesting thing about this shot is I was just about to leave, then as I sat waiting for my transport to arrive this couple just happened to be at the right place, had I not looked back I would have missed this shot. Goes to show, always look behind you there may just be a great shot there. C&C welcome.
