Bahai…Uganda

Bayimba International Festival was a success. A few days after the festival, the question on every photographers mind who attended was how to keep the momentum.

Bahai lights up at night. A rare sight, at least of Africa's Bahai

With the company of French Photographer / Videographer, Irene Sinou, we started with a visit to the Bahai Temple.

Each continent hosts one Bahai Temple. And so, Uganda now happens to be Africa’s spiritual heart for the Bahai.

Photography-wise, prior research gave me one result about the Bahai which is located on Kikaya Hill, 7km from the city centre. Entirely every picture is taken during the day.For a change, i thought about talking night ones too.

Bahai is calm, green, and peacefully sits on top of Kampala. At the peak, you are served with spectacular hills in excess of five that make up some of Kampala’s residential areas.

Unfortunately, 5pm is when the serene worship place was closed. With Irene, we camped the nearby areas waiting for the sun to go down.

We got amazing pictures of school children returning home.  Farmers clearing their gardens, the moon lighting up East of Kampala and us taking pictures of us..Sick huh?

At the end of it all, we all had to go somewhere....
