The skyline of downtown Kampala with a marketplace in front of it.
A growing numbers of inhabitants of African countries move to the big cities. In Uganda you have just one metropole and that's Kampala. The most of the aerea's are quite rural and not comparable with our cities but downtown has a real city feeling with its high buildings, shops, congesting traffic and all the people walking around.

One might say all human life is here. A fine capture of this bustling market scene with the varied background architecture adding further interest. Well presented under a good light with very good colours and sharpness.

Indeed, this area looks more like a village, nothing to do with any kind of urbanization. I like the atmosphere of a genuine market.
Well taken scene.

J'aime beaucoup cette scène de la vie quotidienne dans cette partie du monde. La vie est intense et les couleurs merveilleuses. J'aime beaucoup le rire de la dame à l'avant plan.

Very nicely exhibited the daily life of Kampla - Uganda. Good contrast and well sharped image, color is quiet natural.

Good evening Gerrit,
The modern skyscraper seems as "rising" from the relatively older neighbourhood, with names on front balconies on those buildings.
But wjat attract the viewer most, is the chaotic scene on the street "market" - yet vibrant and vivid in action.
Nicely combined, fine technical's on photo.

Een mooie impressie van het dagelijks leven in deze Afrikaanse stad. Goede compositie waarin veel te zien is. Het licht is ook erg prettig.

yes, another wonderful capture from Uganda.
as mentioned before to you, i'm loving these.
interesting to see the open market like this, looks a bit chaotic but i'm sure its not to them at all.
are many of the streets in the city like this? unpaved?
lots to view and learn from here.

Hi Gerrit dear
I like the portrait of a young woman in the foreground and in combination with the market and the people. A good documentary of everyday life. Good sharpness and exposure. Thanks for sharing

Hi Gerrit.The hustle and bustle of daily life is well captured here and included is a moment of happiness from the woman carrying the chicken.I cannot think of Uganda without thinking about the lunatic Amin and the horrors that he inflicted on his people. Regards. Klaudio.
