Uganda is sensory overload in the best sense. During my time there, I walked, ran and drove in whatever direction the Sirens of this sultry land pulled me—pointing my camera here, there and everywhere in an attempt to capture the explosive colors, the bold patterns, the sensuous textures, all framed against a backdrop of lush vegetation and rich, red African dirt.
Then there were the people—warm and embracing with artfully sculptured faces that synchronized beautifully with the painted canvas and constant clamor of the street.
No question, Uganda is just one giant feasting table laid out with a cornucopia of goodies—all for the taking, or for the grabbing, if you’re a sensory-deprived Westerner like myself.
Here are just a few of the images I captured. (The rest can be viewed in Parts II-IV) Some were “happy accidents”—images that had flaws (usually due to my trying to shoot from a fast moving vehicle) that I used to my advantage by creating some intriguing pieces of photo art. Others were just as sharp and clear as I had viewed them with the naked eye.
Three images are enough for this post (short attention spans and all that). Look for the next ones in my this series to be posted in the next few days.
