Sunrise over the Maasai Mara Game Reserve, southwest Kenya; Nov 1977.

Well, a 43 year old colour transparency that resided for over a decade in the heat and humidity of the tropics.  The colours are altering slightly, a little too much purple or mauve in there now, I think.  But does this matter, is this important?

I could refrain from posting this image because it is no longer a totally accurate representation of the scene – or simply enjoy it for what it now is.  To me, the former option would be far more than a tad puritanical, somewhere on a long road to nowhere perhaps.  Somewhere I never want to be.

I’m re-posting photographs that I took in Kenya over 30 years ago.  You can find more context here .  Click onto the “Archive Kenya” tag (below) to see more of these film images from Kenya.




About Adrian Lewis
Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    After all, it’s not about accuracy, it’s about – well, lots of other things, like emotion, beauty….

    Glorious! As for the colour change – it’s all part of its journey ………


  3. Helen Cherry says:

    It doesn’t matter because it is wonderful just the way it is now


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