Am Made of Dark

Happy soul ultra pro max!

I remember my first silhouette shot. It was during the KkrewBs Photoshoot back in 2015.

I never knew how to edit or modify the photo in any way. I just loved the dark figures that formed from light. From then I have never stopped shooting silhouettes.

My next stop was in Uhuru Park where my photographer friend and I experimented the Nikon D3200 for the first time.

Then we decided to get more creative…

  • Touch The Tip
  • The Pyramid

We happened to go for a hangout at Nairobi Safari Walk and my thirst for silhouettes was never quenched by these.

  • Peace
  • Sun Silhouette

Ngong Hills never filled my hunger either…

  • Lady Silhouette
  • Hair Silhouette
  • Girl Silhouette

Then during a worship experience in CITAM Thika Road, a pianist friend of mine asked for a photo and I shot a silhouette instead. From that day on they nicknamed me ‘Silowet’

On a trip to Mombasa, I chose to shoot silhouettes at dawn

  • Sunrise Ocean
  • Sunrise Golden Hour Boat

And that fused with figures of people become masterpieces.

  • Bliss
  • Sunrise Hands
  • Sunrise-Jump

Ever seen a silhouetted version of the Vasco Da Gamma Pillar?

How about a silhouetted landscape? Took these at Amboseli

  • Trees-Sunset
  • Sunrise In Amboseli
  • Dry Tree In Amboseli

You can also get a little creative with silhouettes.

My love for silhouettes is unquenchable – my profile picture on social platforms is a silhouetted portrait of me. This is why I say, “I am made of Dark”

My mom is the reason I am not married. I remember I was standing beside my primary school crush spitting M.S Patel’s English Aid lines and she swiftly walked past us jealously saying, “You wouldn’t say that this is the same Siloma who farts like a torn drum every night.”

Barbershops are for softies who love their heads caressed with eyebrow-deprived female attendants. I only get my hair cut in a Kinyozi. A place where the tail of a dead cow does its magic.
