Greetings from Kenya

I live in the deserts of northern Kenya where I have captured the nomads for years with my Pentax K10 and now the wonderful K5 II. I'm excited to join the forum and hope to learn a lot from all you talented photographers!

Yes, welcome and please post some photos. It will be the only way many of us will be able to see Kenya.

Welcome and hope you enjoy this fine forum.
Kenya is very close to me and I would be looking out for your posts of images from your homeland with eagerness.

Nzuri Sana, Thanks for the welcome. I have put up a few pics so long. I hope this will work, I'm just trying to get the hang of how a forum like this works.

You must be in Masai land, or these are from visits to the area.
If your photos are posted somewhere on the web, they can just be tagged with [IMG] and the URL of the image followed by a [/IMG]. Or you can click the insert image icon in the text prompt area, which does it for you. Resolution around 600-800 pixels should be large enough to appreciate on the web.

Thanks Ash for the help, I will try to get that figured out.
These are the Samburu people. They are like long lost cousins of the Masai that live in North Eastern Kenya and due to their remoteness they are still much more nomadic. In culture, dress and language they are very similar to the Masai.

What are you doing in such a remote part of the country?
Mission work by any chance?
