poor kids

poor kid

scared of the mzungu

This is generally what happened when mamas in Northern Uganda shoved their kids in my face to meet the white person, and the child got scared out of their mind like they had just seen a ghost. I told this lady no, but she insisted. I snapped the photo for her sake and then quickly walked away for the child’s sake. So funny and so sad at the same time. I’m really not all that scary.
I went to Uganda to capture the stories through photography of what God is doing there through Adonai Partners.
