Nairobi’s Skyline

dsc_0119

On a random day last week we decided to check out how Nairobi looks from an aerial view and what better place than the KICC rooftop ? To access the rooftop we paid Ksh 150 for unlimited time up there.

I was surprised to see how green Nairobi is. From the ground all i would see was pavements,roads and buildings and the only green i ever noticed was the one on the round abouts’ and by the road side and probably in the parks.

The view is Spectacular,its breathtaking ,its simply Amazing! We have a very colorful city and very green. It also looks very orderly from the rooftop. I managed to take a couple shots of the amazingly beautiful skyline and they turned out great.

10 Things Sheyce Loves Doing : 8. Playing Lil Photographer !

dsc_0013

Everyone who has met Sheyce knows she always has a Camera in one hand and a book on the other hand. We may say that is typical me except for the book,Lol!

I had my first contact with a Camera when i was 12years old,It was a Kodak Kb.10 35mm Camera and i remember taking pictures of almost everything ,my dad actually kept most of those pictures and i still have the Camera to date. I later upgraded to a better Kodak ,then a Sony Cyber shot Camera which is now Sheyce’s Camera.

img_0052

I recently got a Nikon D3200 DSLR which is such a good camera and it got me to realize that i am  passionate about photography and its  not just a hobby.Sheyce then became the proud owner of a Camera.

dsc_0065

Ever since Sheyce started using the Sony Cyber shot camera,i feel safe to say she is really good at it ,she is Turning 3 in a couple of weeks ; she understands what a camera is,how it works,she knows how to aim ,capture and go through her photos after taking them. If you ask me,that seems like very deep interest which will grow into passion. She likes taking pictures of People ,beautiful places and sometimes food ,which is basically what i also take.Here are some of her pictures,No edits,just as she took them.

The other day she met the amazingly talented  photographer ,Bobo of Bobo photography and she was stuck on him,you would think she knew how good he is at what he does,and went ahead to show off her skills which he fell in love with.

dsc_0003

dsc_0015

She is quite young to tell what her path is but we as parents ought to nurture the things we may perceive as talent in our kids as early as we see the interest they have in them.With the photos she has taken so far,one can confidently say she takes better pictures than some of us and its very impressive and admirable to see a little person trying to focus on her subject to get a good shot.

dsc_0014

I do not know if i will be able to cover the 7 more things Sheyce loves doing by the end of the year but i will try my best to.

Thank you for stopping by .

The Daddy_Daughter Squad

dsc_0093

It is exactly a year since i started this blog and i couldn’t be any prouder of the progress i have made over the year.I have such a long way to go to get it to where i need it to be but its slowly but surely getting there.

dsc_0133

When i started  this blog ,the concept was built on a small family of three,young parents in their twenties who wanted to bring up their daughter exploring her country,experiencing its beauty,seeing its magic and discovering its hidden treasures.And in the process she would get to learn of its diverse culture due to the many ethnic groups it has and also learn how Kenya came to be Kenya,basically our History.

dsc_0116

Local traveling is something most of us would love to indulge in but is in its own way quite expensive and requires you to sometimes plan before hand.So far ,we have chosen to visit places that are totally affordable.You too can join the wagon and start where you are,help promote the local tourism in our country! Lets brand Kenya! Its such a beautiful country!

dsc_0030

In Miss Gaceru ,i feature my daughter,Sheyce and her Baba,Gaceru as they explore Kenya.They are the perfect duo and their relationship which is effortlessly and naturally beautiful brings life to all the moments i have captured of them in our Explorations.

dsc_0077

He is her favorite in all ways even if i spend more time with her than he does,somehow in her eyes he is the superman,the perfect parent. I bet this happens to all mommies with daughters,She will always choose him over you. #sigh!

dsc_0066

As we celebrate one year of the blog ,Missgaceru.com,i celebrate these two for letting me feature them as my main characters in the blog,for giving me some of the most beautiful shots yet,for going on all the trips we have gone so far, for always being patient with my lens,for being my partners in all these and for being my squad!

dsc_0106

dsc_0115

These are some amazingly beautiful random moments i captured of Sheyce and her Baba. They have such a beautiful bond that seems to grow every time and they are simply my perfect to go squad.

The Hub Karen

dsc_0003

In Kenya Today Malls are sprouting everywhere you turn,which is a good thing because it shows the country is growing and developing each day. Mall have their Cons and Pros but i will dwell more on the Pros,You know,team Optimists!

dsc_0006

Sheyce looks forward to going to the mall and somehow she neither gets bored nor outgrows the activities she indulges in at the mall. The other day we decided to check in at the newest mall in town ,The Hub Karen.

dsc_0009

The Hub is located in one of the suburbs in Nairobi,Karen, and the Mall is nothing short of its standards and caliber. Its so serene and simply stunning. From the moment you walk in you feel a different kind of ambience ,its well organized,the flower beds and pots are strategically placed ,there is so much space and there are high end stores and restaurants everywhere you turn.

The Mall has funscapes which is an indoor play area for kids where parents can leave kids of all ages playing and feel safe because they get to be under great surveillance and the stuff there are just friendly and hospitable . This was Sheyces highlight of the whole Hub Karen experience and she said they have better games than TRM (sorry  TRM!LOL)

The shopping experience couldn’t get any better. They have a French Franchised supermarket,Carrefour which stalks some of the best snacks(cheat days )ever,their price range too is very fair and  did i mention how spacious it is ? And the customer service i got here has got to be the best i have ever gotten in any other supermarket in Kenya(not kidding).

The hub is one of the most beautiful malls i have come across in Nairobi but i feel safe to say In Kenya and i know most of you will agree with me. The landscape in the backyard is one of a kind. There is the water body which has a bridge and a waterfall and it simply complements the beautiful structures of the mall and lush gardens which would be great for picnics with family and loved ones.
