To mark the new year, a team of Jinja photo enthusiasts took on a 3 kilometer evening stroll dubbed #jinjaInstaWalk. The stroll started at 4:20PM with the Amber Court as the starting point and for two and half hour the team explored the beauty of Jinja some of which is hidden in ruins and plain day light.
Some of the most amazing spots were the now dilapidated Amber Court club which offers a great photo-shoot location. The space which to have hosted Jinja’s corporate class in the fifties and sixties now looks abandoned but still speaks of the excellent engineering and embodies a long standing history of this country.
Another interesting stop was the new Source of the Nile Bridge which presents another architectural beauty that will forever standout. The bridge constructed with aid from the Japanese government was commissioned in 2017 by the President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and has since provided a desired photo shoot location. The #Jinjainstawalk undoubtedly captured amazing shots of this architectural marvel in angles that have arguably not been used before.
The team also took on an off road trail following the Jinja-Lugazi railway track to the Nile Railway bridge constructed in 1931. This part of the stroll could easily pass for many of the people who attended as the most eye catching. It presented a unique crisp experience and an awesome view of the adorable Jinja sunset. As many photo enthusiasts are obsessed with the short lived sunset, this was a well presented opportunity for the team to collect as many golden hour photos as possible.
