The Lucky Shot

lucky shot

I had been taking pictures the whole day. For some reason, I was not feeling the assignment. I mean, try shoot papyrus and the sanitary pads that are made of of them. But towards the end while shooting at the actual swamp, I saw this guy moving with his papyrus and panga. I knew this was it. I followed him and called out, “ssebo” (Luganda for ‘sir’ or the equivalent). when he turned, I started shooting away. And this was my lucky shot of the day.

Stellah Nantumbwe Miss Uganda 2013/14

When Stellah Nantumbwe was crowned Miss Uganda Central in May, I knew there was something special about this her.   She was oozing with too much confidence. After being crowned, her eyes were already looking at the Miss World crown. “My eyes are on the Miss World title,” she said, after she was crowned at Masaka’s Maria Flo hotel. Weeks later, she has been crowned Miss Uganda and her dream of contesting at Miss World is about to come true. Read Story here. Nantumbwe, loves photography, singing, volunteering and hiking. She is inspired by Tereza Mbire because of her efforts to empower women and encourage them to create their own businesses. She is a business computing graduate from Greenwich University in the UK.  Miss Uganda West Anita Kyarimpa was the 1st runner-up and Sandra Amongin the 2nd runner-up.
