Kenyan Women

In many cases in Kenya the ones who run the country are the women of the country.They take care of the children and the old people, work in the fields, sell at the markets, have the responsibility of the managment of the householdand so on and so on.. many work very hard doing whatever possible to pay the needs of their families.Meantime, in far too many occasions, their husbands or partners waste their hard-earned money drinking, gambling or with their latest girlfriend.. It´s nota joke... continue reading

Face to face with our "relatives"

As it happens when we are confronted with the face of a primate, we sometimes get a shocking impression of looking at somebody who is familiar to us. That happens because many apes share with us our most common feelings like fear, anger, happiness and joy among many others and, what is more important they are able to express this emotions on their face the same way we do.The recent sale of a portrait of a Tufted Capuchin Monkey from Peru gave me the idea of presenting some other close-ups of other... continue reading

Leopards

On my last five trips to Kenya and visiting mainly the Tsavo West and East NP as well as Maasai Mara (one time) I always tried to stay away from the masses of tourists in their mini-busses.Actually most tourists want to see the so-called "big five" . Elephant, Buffalo, Rhino, Lion and Leopard. So, to have more intimacy and experience the beauty of the amazing landscapes you have to stay away from this animals, specially lions. It is normal to find one or more lions surrounded by dozens of mini-... continue reading

Those tough pigs

Today I made a sale of a Warthog which is one of the funniest (the piglets) and toughest (mother with piglets) african animals you can imagine.This pic is by far not any of the better Warthog photos I made during several trips to Kenya but sometimes the buyer choses those images and he is supposed to know better what he wants and why he takes that decision. (I wish there was more communication between contributors and buyers)It is not the first time that I sell a picture which in my opinion... continue reading

The Great Migration, Kenya

As my passion in photography is wildlife, the Masai Mara in Kenya was always a dream to go and shoot.That dream became reality and I finally got an opportunity to photography the great migration! It's actually quite hard to describe the migration as I feel it is something that can only be experienced!One thing I noticed in the Migration is the number of Zebra that follow the migration, its not only Wildebeest as most people think. Thousands of Zebra take part in the migration as well.I... continue reading

Kenyan Masai Tribe

In 2011 I visited Kenya and a Masai tribe in the Natural Park in Masai Mara. Their buildings, made of mud and branches, are in a circular fence. Out of this fence there is a little corral for cows.They are agriculturists and breeders and, if there is not famine, they are self-sufficient. They wear colorful clothes and and a lot of necklaces and bracelets made of colored beads.When we arrived we were welcomed by the men of the tribe who danced a welcome rhythmic dance out of the fence.... continue reading
