Trying to be subtle

I am longing to take photos but it is a tricky one. A person cannot just approach people going about their daily lives, cooking, peeling, sewing, driving, laughing and chasing children and snap photos as if of animals behind a cage in the zoo. What is so exotic and unusual to my eyes is quite normal to the people here and the taking of photographs must be approached with some sensitivity. I am planning on venturing out alone, camera in hand and approaching people with a smile.

 

In the meantime I have found a fondness for photographing billboards. A lot can be revealed with a billboard and therefore I include a number of scenes of Kampala, billboards included.
