The Road to Aberdares by Steven Kitoto

The beauty about Onetouch Live is that its a great opportunity to explore, learn from a bunch of amazing guys and practically freeze to death or literally boil in extreme heat. On this very day the roads led us to Aberdares, I mean I figured this place is cold but not that cold ... boy were in for a surprise. I had always dreamed about going to Aberdares, so naturally I was stoked for this adventure.

As is custom for OTLive trips, we started off early and naturally we made our first stop at Kinale Forest. The aim was to be in Aberdares early to enjoy the sights. After shopping for the necessary things for the 2 nights we would be there ... It was time to start heading up the hills into the Aberdare ranges.

I chose to dabble in a bit of macro photography while there, the morning dew on the grass provided the perfect opportunity to do this. Decided to follow some bees as well 😬 ...

Colour Wheel by Steven Kitoto

Some weeks back I partnered with a friend and awesome make up artist Wakesho Nzano, working on a few themed photoshoots. For this particular shoot, we chose to dwell on colour and see how best to achieve this through bold makeup, hope you enjoy the images.

The Road to Malindi by Steven Kitoto

Hey guys, hope you had a great start to the week? Towards the end of last year we got to together with some friends and decided to head down to the coast for some holiday time. This trip was exploration of the Kenyan coast mainly in Malindi, we chose not to go to Diani seeing as we were there the year before.

Below are some images of the sights in Malindi, hope you enjoy 😊!

The Road Less Travelled by Steven Kitoto

Hello guys,

Welcome to my new blog and website, how does it look? If you haven't had a chance to look around and see some of the stuff I have done, please do go ahead and do so now :).

I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel’s sake. The great affair is to move.

I love to travel, capture and discover new things not only in my homeland but every place I get to visit. This particular time I got a chance with a few friends to head down to Lake Natron. Lake Natron is in the Arusha Region which is North of Tanzania and it stretches close to the Kenyan border. 

The route to Lake Natron is through Lake Magadi, there is actually no documented route from Magadi to Natron just several paths you see criss-crossing used during different seasons  depending on weather patterns. While at Magadi boys shall be boys and we stopped by the lake to drive the cars through the waters and take photos :)

After the mud-slinging Shani (@sirnare) and Mutua (@truthslinger) pose by their beasts of machines.

The road to Natron from Lake Magadi is non-existent and full of dust, so the cameras were safely tucked away as we plugged through the dust and ended up along the Ewaso Nyiro Delta that leads into Lake Natron. 

The following morning we headed out to Lake Natron and below is the beauty that awaited us.

Here there is no stamping of passports and checking cargo while crossing borders, Maasai's from Tanzania freely cross to and fro with their livestock into Kenya and back.

Thank you for checking out my blog post, I hope you enjoyed looking at the images. Please do leave a comment down below and share widely.

Cheers!
