Almond Resort, Garissa

Despite the negative news coming from Garissa recently, it really has some very cool places to stay, namely, the Almond Resort. I hear there is Nomad hotel, but haven’t been there yet.

This was an assignment to shoot the hotel and it’s environs for their website and general usage. So we kicked off with the rooms, during the day


One thing with Garissa is that  the sun can get very hot and pretty fast, so any exterior shots have to be done dusk or dawn. So for this last shot we waited till evening to shoot. The results were rather pleasing, particularly because I sometimes struggle with Arch photography.

This image was achieved through blending 3 or so images

    This looks more of a nice motel then a hotel mainly, because, my idea of a hotel should look similar to hotels in the USA very fancy inside and out and has a modern architect. I am really proud of what the people of Garisa and Ogadenia have accomplished thus far, but, I still want to them to outshine all Somalis in Somalia and outside and build something that is appealing to foreigners rather then Somalis.
