Tranquil empty streets in Kampala. A sight so rare

Parts of Kampala can look like a ghost town over the festive season. These pictures were taken on Christmas day and streets that are ordinarily full of traffic were almost completely empty. 

I kind of liked the feel in a way. Almost wished the city was that quiet all the time.

Kampala Night Lights

Took the Canon EOS 600D out on the town one Saturday night to see if I could shot night video with only the surrounding lights for illumination.

I now know its quite possible and with a few tweaks in the settings and focus I can probably get something less grainy  and sharper- learning curve just got less steep.

Scenes from a banana market in Mbarara

As the title suggests, this is a short video of scenes from a banana (matooke) market just outside Mbarara town shot in January 2014.

The bananas are brought from the surrounding villages and loaded onto the waiting trucks to be transported to Kampala.

Mbarara district is one of Uganda's leading producers of bananas, which are a staple food for most people in Central, Western and Southern Uganda.
