Beautiful Women

As far back as I can remember, I've always had a great passion for collecting and keeping stuff. Not just any stuff but things that amaze and leave me in awe.

I still remember my first attempt at collecting. They were these cute little baby mice I'd got while playing in the chicken house. One look at them and I knew they had to be mine for keeps. I immediately took them away and placed them in one of my school shoes. Soon, my mum was surprised to see the interest the cat had taken in my shoes and there was no way I could explain the cotton wool neatly placed in the shoe. Long story short, I got beaten and the cat enjoyed the mice.

This did not deter me from my collection craze and over the years, I collected lots of stuff from random weird metallic objects by the roadside to bullets and grenade shells from some old battle field not very far away from where I used to live as a toddler. Actually, I still have all the old Ugandan paper currency ever used since independence tucked away somewhere in an old wallet with me but left my coin collection of world currency in the hands of my brother who is not as enthusiastic as me in keeping stuff.

By the beginning of 2008, I had a new idea for a collection. I'd collect all pictures of any beauty my eyes or hands could cross. Things rather went smoothly for me in the start because after sharing my idea with a few friends, It was an instant hit and they were more than willing to support me in this venture pouring in pictures of any girls they thought had to be included.

Each picture would have 40 seconds to impress and make it to the collection otherwise it would end up in the second look folder. Not every picture brought in made it to my B list. Pics had to be of female, 17-30 years, Ugandan, little or no make up, No photoshop-ing, and nude pics. Marital status was not an issue at all.

For example, Hot as they are, these ladies stolen from somewhere in the inter webs & shown below would not make it to my collection



Some of the pictures would come from party/club shots, flicker, Hi5 and face book, yeah whenever they are weddings and girls night's out, you are bound to get lots of free pictures of beauties at your disposal readily posted on the net whatever your lens could not get.

It's a shame that I did not make a back up of my ladies collection (+ other stuff) when I moved to New York and yet I left my laptop behind thus, can not show a sample of some of the girls that made it. However, today while looking at some old email looking for a particular mail from an old friend, I saw an attachment targeted for my beauty list and the memories flowed back. One of the pictures had Racheal K and if I recall well, she was booed out of the list in further consultations.

The spirit has come back again! Am reopening the Pearl of Africa Beauties collection. There is no hidden agenda with the relaunch just some hope that one day I can be able to share my collection of some of Uganda's finest with the world. I already have almost 5 pictures on the new B list and even though I could go through the laborious process of combing through thousands of pictures on face book & my space (read the privacy policies) looking for outstanding comments, It would create some kinda bias so I'd appreciate to get some help from the blog sphere community.

So when you see that photo that deserves recognition and would do the world an injustice not to be in the B collection, holla at a brother. If you happen to be the type to walk around with a lens, make sure to get a shot if you see an aww aww.

I did get some more inspiration from this 640pixels site as I was waling through the inter webs. Brothers and some sister's would appreciate these portraits


Have a Splendid Week

Interesting.
I know some prettty ladies but they just don't do camera.Wonder why one stumbles on the most fascinating faces in the roughs and they are happy to stay there?

Emi's said...
