I love mannequins

And I am not talking about an epic 80’s movie, I mean the real deal. I constantly pass mannequins as we are driving and sadly I cannot stop traffic to take photos. But occasionally I do snap a few and they always make me smile. Remind me to publish a book of mannequins around the world one day.

Kampala Corners

This is the way most people in Kampala buy their dinner each evening. They buy a fresh chicken, tuck it under their arm and ride a Boda Boda home.

 

A common sight here, cows just walking along the road. As I have said before, they are stupid, gormless creatures who can be kept in line by one boy and his stick. Many times have I sat in traffic waiting for the cows to pass.

 

 

These are the stands where people either charge their cell phones, buy air time or, if they have no cell, use these phone to make their call.

 

A mannequin displays the dress she wants to sell. Rather than lots of indoor shops, most stores are open onto the street and the colourful wares are displayed outside.

Photo # 10 . I love the English Country side

See that tiny white horse up on that hill way back in the background? Well that was carved over 200 years ago. The English Country Side is ancient and wonderful and even more magical spent with old friends.

Remember when we used to go into a box to make a phone call? Photo #5

The paint is peeling and they are a rare sight these days but it is good to see the old school phone boxes. I doubt they are used that often but what would London be without red phone boxes and buses?

Wednesday photos

This one is entitled Practice. I am not sure what they are practicing for but there are using sticks in place of guns and many have no shirts on. I think this might be a security drill, but I sort of hope not.

A usual sight here in Kampala, cows being walked. There is a man on a bike holding a stick who seems to keep them in line, but cows are such gormless creatures, they wouldn’t really think to go AWOL.

Colourful signs above a store.

This cow is in the centre of a roundabout next to the sculptural advert for a refreshing local beverage. He is tied to something, but again gormless.
