4 X 4 Challenge Champagne Park, Kipeto

The 4 X 4 Challenge has drawn a lot of interest from the petrol heads, adventure and outdoor lovers in Kenya. Over time, the event has been held in different locations from Kipeto to Lukenya where the roads / tracks are un-surfaced, with mud, gravel, rocks or even riverbeds or water filled pools. This time round it was hosted in Champagne park, Kipeto area and for sure a lot of Kenyan motoring enthusiasts came for the event.

The event usually is held over a weekend with activities from qualifiers to the finals per category. All vehicles are scrutinized and given pass to take part. Despite all that, some get to stall, get stuck but through it all each finds its own strength. Different passions are seen through the teams and their vehicles

From Friday through to Sunday in the evening, there is camping, food and drinks available on purchase through out. A relaxed time out to smell nature and see the outdoors, see the new upgrades of 4 X 4, meet friends and rally lovers and have a great time with family as well, a getaway plan. Did i mention the nyama choma / fry is deli always available? You don’t want to miss it next time

As usual, Machoni Mwangu Photography was around and took some images as below:

Honda Shadow 750cc Cruiser

The Honda Shadow 750cc cruiser is indeed a beauty with gorgeous pipes and shinny chromes. The bike is based on Honda's venerable liquid-cooled 52-degree V-twin engine. It has an impressive torque in the lower rpm ranges. The engine sports twin-plug, three-valve cylinder heads, with two intakes. At calm speeds along the greens, the bike was easy and noisily picking up speed. Fantastic however, the pillion seat is just miniature. For a long distance, it is sure going to hurt your rear.

The well kept and nicely spruced up Honda shadow cruiser got Kevin and I meet up at the Karirana estates one Sunday afternoon for a shoot. The idea was bring out the chrome on the bike against the back ground of the coffee plantations and the blue sky. The clear road and winding turns brought out some great images ideas as well

See some images captured on this Sunday break out of town

A Lesson in Tennis

Every great dream starts with a dreamer and a lesson in any game will instill a passion in life that could be a turning point for some. Tennis is a racket sport which can be played individually against a single opponent or between two teams of two players each. Each player uses a tennis racket that is strung with cord to strike a hollow rubber ball into the opponent's court. We chose to showcase a passion in tennis with a friend of mine which produced great images as well.

Bring up a child about the way he should go and he will not depart from it even in old age. Expose a child to all the things you know to be beneficial to you, with time they will learn their passions and take up what interests them
