Young boys – curious, uncertain –  at a wedding near Thika, Kenya, in the late 1970s.

I think I was the only non-African at this ceremony, and so an object of great curiosity to all the youngsters there.

There is another image from this wedding here.

Technique: OM-2 with 75-150 Zuiko lens; Kodak Ektachrome 200 colour slide (I think!); Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Landscape preset.


About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    You captured really interesting expressions in this photo, Adrian. I can understand your dismay and concern with the state of the country these days – so many countries – it’s a turbulent time.


  2. I love these shots and always wonder where the people might be now.
    They must have loved you, bud.

    Oh yes, marvellous, you must have so many memories from your times in Kenya


    • Adrian Lewis says:

      Yes, very many, a wonderful and valuable experience. I’ve never really got entirely back in to being back here. And now I hope that the current political uncertainty in Kenya will not develop into aggression, killing and the ruination of the country.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
