Cows everywhere. In the fields, on the roads and walkways.
This guy blocked my motorbike and unleashed a fat load right in front of me 💩
Despite painting the town brown, the locals just politely try and shoo them away, and hopefully they defecate next to someone else’s food cart.
Here in Uganda this week I had the honor of delivering some prints of portraits I shot on my last few visits. This is the delivery of the shot from four posts back! (See my latest stories profile album for a couple more). Beautiful to see how the children have grown even in 1-2 years. These resilient people live in deplorable conditions yet their joy, gratitude, and humility remain their greatest strengths. Just the chance to hang a photo of their child in their humble shanty is a gift not many of them would have ever imagined possible. Just to print and mount the images on the least expensive option I could find would cost them 6 or 7 days’ wages. I spent the afternoon and evening with them well after dark as so many of them begged me to enter their makeshift homes, built with every intention of love to shelter their families. Their gratitude and hospitality toward a foreigner willing to enter their forsaken squatters’ colony and bring gifts was overwhelming. My visits are always met with endless smiles and laughter. As I sit with these people I cannot imagine that I have anything to teach them, all I can give them is my unconditional love and respect for their strength and courage to keep smiling in the midst of some of earth’s most extreme circumstances. 📷 Shot at the @peacegospel Children's Hope Center.
