Kenya, Summer 2000

A fortunate set of circumstances converged. Mwenda, a Kenyan friend with whom I studied anthropology at Illinois, was back home, teaching and living on a compound just outside of Nairobi. He invited me to come visit. I had a little $$ from teaching a course in the spring semester, I just left the last 3 chapters of my dissertation with my advisor, and had a visiting position at a nearby college for January. So, I took the money and ran to Kenya for six weeks. (What else would you have me do??!!)

I did go on several safaris. They were amazing! To see those images, go to the "Nature's Way" portfolio.

All images were taken with my Leica M-6 except the black & white shots on safari. Those were taken with my Olympus XAII. Both are 35mm film cameras. The negatives were scanned on a Nikon 9000 scanner and processed in Adobe Lightroom.
