The elaborately carved wooden doors of Lamu tell the stories of the families that live there, weaving together the Swahili, Arabic and Indian traditions that have influenced the history and culture of the island. Each of the carvings has a meaning, and gives clues about the original families that lived there. The flowers on top tell you how many families lived there originally, the wave-like patterns make reference to seafaring trade and life at sea, and the old brass studs showcase the wealth of the family that built the home.

Dardanus pedunculatus, the Anemone Hermit Crab, seen here with the commensal anemones that adorn it's shell home. These Hermits cover their shells in Anemones for defense from predators because although they might not seem harmful to us, an Anemone can give off a nasty sting to intrusive threats. #hermitcrab #anemonehermitcrab #anemone #crab #crustacean #selfdefense #mutualbenefit #reef #coralreef #coralcommunity #night #nightdive #nightphotography #photography #underwaterphotography #diving #scuba #scubadiving #indianocean #westernindianocean #ocean #swahilicoast #daressalaam #tanzania #eastafrica #saveourseas #nauticam #sony #blueplanet

The Splendid Pebble Crab, Etisus splendidus, is one of the larger crustaceans to reside on the reef. Particularly elusive during the day, these Crabs come out at night to feed but must be extra cautious as Octopus and Stingray stalk the shallow reefs at night, and this Crab is on the menu. #splendidpebblecrab #pebblecrab #crab #crustacean #reef #coralreef #coralcommunity #night #nightdive #diving #divingphotography #underwaterphotography #scuba #scubadiving #ocean #indianocean #daressalaam #tanzania #eastafrica #swahilicoast #westernindianocean #saveourseas #blueplanet

At night, many creatures on the coral reef take shelter in between the ridges of the coral Pachyseris speciosa, which can stretch for hundreds of meters across reef slopes. The overlapping segments of the coral can provide a deep crevace in which crustaceans, cephalopods and small fish can hide throughout the night. #Pachyseris #coral #coralreef #coralshelter #coralcommunity #microcosm #safety #crustaceans #cephalopods #fish #reeffish #night #nightdive #nightphotography #underwaterphotography #diving #divingphotography #scuba #scubadiving #nauticam #sony #daressalaam #tanzania #eastafrica #tanzania #swahilicoast #saveourseas #blueplanet

Building homes from discarded plastic lids, chicken feed sacks, iron sheets and driftwood has become a necessity in some villages on Lamu island, a World UNESCO heritage site. Most of the larger, more well known Swahili houses are built from coral blocks and plastered with traditional lime rendering methods, to stunning effect. But I can’t help admiring these ingenious and creative homes made with recycled materials on an island where waste disposal and waste management is such an issue. ‘Peace & love, Mungu tu’ which translates from Kiswahili to English as ‘Peace & love, God only’.
