Children in Kangemi slum, Nairobi

Hi Folks,

the leaves are turning yellow, it’s cloudy and the temperature barely makes it over 10 degrees Celsius… it only means one thing; I’m back in England. I landed this morning and have been spending time finishing off some post processing work and recovering from my African trip.

Africa was exceptional in many ways and I have plenty of adventures to share. For example yesterday I was still spending time in Nairobi’s Kangemi slum visiting an NGO dedicated on improving the education of the children there. It was again very touching and humbling to see how little things can make a big difference such as providing a cup of porridge at lunch time which for some kids will be the only meal of the day.

But what is staying with me most was the look in the children eyes when I was photographing them. I’m not sure what they were thinking about and even now when I look at my pictures of them I still find it difficult to describe the look on their faces.

Let me know what you think…

Also, despite the fact I’ve just arrived back home this morning I’m already starting to pack for my trip to the Far East in a couple of days. I’ll try to provide further notes on my African experience in the coming weeks but my posts will most likely be mixed with Asian flavours.

Keep you posted.

Bernard

    Hi Bernard,
    Praise be to God that you have returned to the UK safe & well. We devoted prayers to you asking for the Lord to watch over you during your time in Africa. Your photographs are stunning and the colours are so vibrant. Have a good time in HK.
    God Bless you,
