Looking at Nairobi

Views of Nairobi…… I never tire of photographing Nairobi, all of its different layers, points of view.  It is an interesting mix of old and new, some parts remaining the same, some ever-changing.  Each of these photographs has had a different treatment because each photograph of Nairobi brings a different feeling, a different texture.  I think the last 2 images show the extremes of Nairobi: a man crossing the new roadway with his mkokoteni (hand cart), and construction workers on their way to build office towers.
