Nairobi by night

As creatives, we always tend to have those once in a while moments when we are not feeling inspired at all. During these periods, we experience something referred to as creative block. “It isย the inability to access one’s flowing stream of inspiration and creativity. What was once an overflowing well of ideas may now feel like an endless drought. It can last for days, months or years at a time.” –

Well for me this past week happened to be one of those moments I struggled to getย the wheels of my brain turning. Usually, when this occurs, I go somewhere new, preferably out of town, to enjoy what’s out there and in the process try capture it as well. “One’s destination is never a place but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller.

Long story short, my wanderlust was nowhere in sight this past week and instead I will be sharing with you some images of Nairobi from the archives I’d taken three months into the year.

I got a chance to see Nairobi from a bird’s eye view and let’s just say that despite my acrophobia (a fear of heights), it is something I would do over and over and over and over again. Cheap thrills my friend :-D!!
