Taking josh to the airport.

By | Me | No Comments

Well I am sitting here at Jomo Kenyatta airport Nairobi waiting for josh to check in. Sadly they don’t allow people to go into the check in area so me and dad are sat outside in the cafe. Mum made it in as the man on the gate had mercy on us.

There is a strange sense of sadness the I always feel when at the this part if the airport as it’s either saying by to someone wheather that’s me leaving or saying by to fammilly members. I must say that it’s not always the case as there is often am much joy at the arrivals part.

I am impressed with all the amount of people that are comming and going it’s quite obvious that many are tourists. This is all really good for the ecconomy and if I was to invest in something it would probably be tourism in Kenya. I am in a way with my spots Kenya website and allmost wish I had sine flyers here to hand out as I am sure many of the people would add their spots of Kenya.

I just got a call from mum saying it’s chaos in the terminal which is not a good thing. If joshs flight is late then he will not catch hi train back to Millfield and then have to sleep at my friends house in ealing. It would just be a hug inconvenience as he has mock gcse exams starting tommorow.

Well I best go and see how I can help.

You can follow my Twitter and look at the twitpics in the side bar.

Ps this was all done on location using my iPhone with a Kenyan orange sim. It’s great to be connected when you want to be.

Advertising in Jomo Kenyatta Airport… a photographers take..

This photo was taken on the entry into Jomo Kenyatta International airport as you walk down towards the Immigration desks..

I liked the original perspective of this image but i later realised that the light that was coming of the adverts on the side were beautiful…

i have just used the curves to pull out this light and then tone down the rest of the backgrounds… i also added a layer effect multiply to be exact and a little gaussian blurr..

do people like it or is it too dark…

one fore thing i had to crop it down as it had allot of useless space above and below it..

I took this one when i landed in nairobi a few months ago… it was nice as there wasnt too many people yet. Apparently it is not allowed but i think i managed to get away with it…

I quite like teh perspective effect especialy the way the lights go of into the distance.. I thought the dark brown toned effect worked well with this one as its is quite old fashioned and 80’s looking in there..
