Monkey in The Eye
It’s always nice to get some recognition when you are a photographer, especially as an amateur like myself, so it was with great pleasure that I found out that one of my pictures had been selected for the cover page of August-September edition of The Eye Magazine. The Eye is a free bi-monthly magazine published in Uganda where I have been working and is an insiders guide to touring and travel in Uganda. You can generally find free copies in all the major hotels and on the major airlines travelling there, so it has quite an extensive circulation within the country. The Eye Magazine contains directories, maps, reviews, tour and travel information and articles of interest about Uganda. In fact it is invaluable resource for any visitor travelling there as it contains an invaluable array of information on hospitals to hotels, shops to sporting events and from embassies to entertainment. If there’s anything happening or things you need to see in Uganda it’s most probably going to be in The Eye.
The picture used is that of a young Vervet monkey and above is a montage of the various colour schemes they tried before deciding on the purple in centre of the bottom row. To be honest they all look good to me, but darker border suite the picture well. I’ve yet to see the printed copy, but hopefully they will have kept a couple of issues for me. A copy of the original photo is below.
If you ever do get to Uganda (a fabulous place, especially for seeing wildlife) be sure to check your copy of The Eye Magazine in your hotel, it really is a good little magazine.
