Beck Meets · Out And About


Oh that’s a good band name “Beck and the Giraffes”. It would have Beck and every tall person in our family 😉

Giraffe was a name I was constantly called in high school here in Kenya, that as well as Long Neck and then Flamingo. By the time I transferred to high school in South Africa it was Flamingo, at this time I had a lot confidence in myself as that gangly cool nerd and took the name like a champ. Because let’s face it the flamingo is one of the most elegant and beautiful birds.

So we were bored and home alone when I decided to tap into Beck’s brain and find out what he wanted to do. He told me in that he wanted to see the giraffes. So I called up my little sister and we went to the Giraffe Center then we had an amazing time at the Karen Blixen House on our way home. The last time I went there was a school trip in high school. I was part of the Wildlife Club and all I have as a memory of that trip was this beautiful picture I took of the Manor. We weren’t allowed to have cameras or any gadgets in school and I snuck in a camera and risked it and took pictures on that excursion. Little did I know years later that I would be obsessed and extremely passionate about capturing moments and being behind the camera. I knew I wanted to be in entertainment but I had no idea how that would come to fruition especially since the school cirriculum was not helping in anyway to make my dreams true. Like Diane Von Furstenburg says

I really didn’t know what I wanted to do but I knew which woman I wanted to become”

It was a beautiful trip. Beck was extremely jovial the whole way, his mood is usually very infectious. I mean these days, I am kind of a morning person. I used our new camera to snap some pics of our excursion. Note Beck’s smile in every picture.
