Tribute to Kenya
Kenya is in the news, with distressing reports of violence and unrest.
That country is always on my mind, as I spent a couple of blissful years there as a child; I have an old photograph of the Kilimanjaro in my room (while technically in Tanzania, the regal mountain can be seen from Kenya). I took a picture of the photograph to share with you on this blog, and then realized that a reflection of me snapping the pic can been seen in front of the mountain.
I like its ghost-like quality and its implication that, somehow, I am also a part of that country, of that landscape.
