  1. Hey Georgina!

    it was great meeting you and I hope we cross paths again, later if not sooner.

    I may try to head Nairobi way tomorrow but travel plans are still up in the air a bit.

    You mentioned you’ll be gone for the weekend right?

    Well, anyway get back if you get this.


  2. Hi Georgina,

    Thanks for your interest in Photogrill on Twitter. Have you had a chance to see http://www.photogrill.com ? It’s where I interview photographers about making their strongest image. If you have time I’d be very happy to feature you there, perhaps talking about your Kenyan Election images.

    Keep up the great work
