Picture of the day: Joel & Daniel

Joel & Daniel
Joel & Daniel: Kanyanya, Uganda

These lads are students at St Lazarus Secondary School. They met me sited in a field watching the locals play soccer. The day wasn’t going so good because I hadn’t shot anything yet and the sun light was quickly vanishing. They asked for a picture and boy was I glad they did! The smiles on their faces appeared way before I pointed the camera at them. All they wanted was their picture taken and they didn’t really care to know what would happen to the picture after that. Meet Joel and Daniel

Pictures of the day: Baha’i Temple

Bahai Temple 1: Kikaya Hill
Bahai Temple in Uganda 1: Kikaya Hill

This is the Baha’i Temple in Uganda. The only Baha’i Temple in Africa. I love going to this place though I don’t subscribe to the Baha’i faith. It just feels different here. It’s always quiet when I come here and by quiet I mean there’s no human noise; no kelele of hooting commuter taxi’s and discussion boards about last night’s soccer scores.Here I get to hear the birds chirp in High Definition. I get to follow their conversational sounds. The location is breathe taking; the compound is always kept beautiful and clean. Then, there is the architecture. Just look at it. Who wouldn’t be amazed at that sight in Uganda? This is the kind of place you come to read in peace. The kind of place you can really get lost in despite being out in the open. A place for meditation.

Photo of the week: Still going dark

I thought I was done experimenting with dark, black and white pictures. I was wrong. I don’t think this experiment will be over anytime soon or anytime ever for that matter. There is something about dark pictures that instantly draws me in. Plus, they are easy to edit, for me at least, and being a fan of dark colours, they easily appeal to me.
