Smoke rising

February 27, 2009

Edward Echwalu sent in a series of pictures on a fire in a market place in Kampala, Uganda, this week and managed to send a complete package ensuring he had all the views necessary to illustrate the story.

First he had the overview.

Then he had the scene setter, complete with smoke rising from the ashes.

Then he had the drama of police firing tear gas.

And finally he sent in a powerful portrait of a youth holding a charred soda bottle.

All is good pic.

This photo essay succeeds on another more important human level – it managed to evoke very strong emotions in me as a viewer. Great work!
