Over the summer of 2022, I paid a visit to Watamu with my friend, Shreya, making it our third trip. We stayed in the Airbnb we always get, went to the beaches and restaurants that had become familiar to us, went scuba diving for the second time, and this time around, documented the trip on waterproof disposable cameras.
The quality of a lot of the images turned out to be laughably poor, though we were able to find some photos we loved, including the reference photo for this drawing. It was taken on a particularly good day at an oceanside bar in Watamu called Lichthaus, with direct access into the water from the rope hammocks suspended above. I made this piece wanting to further memorialize this beautiful day.
