Yesterday was Eid. Prayers started at 7.30 am. I walked to the nearby football club grounds where the prayers were being held.

Eid begins with a meal in the morning, just to signify that Ramadan is over and one isn’t fasting anymore. Then you have the Eid prayers and then the celebrations begin.



I was seated behind this father and son. The son was quite playful and his father was very obliging. I couldn’t get a proper photograph discretely without being noticed, and the blue bag was a bit of a nuisance, but moving it can not only expose me as a secret photographer but I will also be suspected of mischief.

After prayers and when everything was done I went up to the duo and asked for a photo to be taken, the boy was very shy. This is all I managed.

Hope you had a great Eid! Eid Mubarak!

I can’t recall if I have posted this picture before. This is a picture I took of some village girls in a saltern in Puttalam, Sri Lanka.

Possibly because of the vivid colours and natural expressions this is a personal favourite of mine, and only reminds me of how much I miss home, and how I long to take more photographs in Sri Lanka.
