It's hard to describe the difference between traffic at any other time of the year and traffic near sunset during the month of Ramadan in this city of at least 13 million people. Tempers are shorter than normal, horns blare, lights flash, drivers zoom this way and that. The city is on edge until its corporate hunger is satisfied with the meal of Iftar. It's hard to demonstrate that in a photo. (Panisonic Lumix DMC FX-580)

…these are actually from the weekend surrounding 8 August 2010. Finally getting around to editing some of the photos from Wendi’s wedding weekend extravaganza. Here are some choice ones so far… [click on one photo to open the lightbox, might be easier to view that way]
Wendi kept her dress hanging in her doorway for weeks to avoid wrinkles. She doesn't seem to mind walking around it too much since there's only two more days till the wedding. (5d mkii, 28-70 f/2.8)
Poor Darcey is taking a break from all the people for some "alone time" under the table. (5d mkii, 28-70 f/2.8)
Deborah had recently finished the alterations on JoLayne's (foreground) bridesmaid dress. JoLayne served as Maid of Honor in the 8 August 2010 ceremony in Nyack, New York. (5d, 24 f/1.4)
The wedding rehearsal was held in the Fee's driveway in Maspeth, New York and followed by a bbq for all out-of-town guests. Craig Fee oversaw the rehearsal and officiated the wedding. (5d mkii, 70-200 f/2.8)
Luke watches joyfully as his bride, Wendi, walks down the aisle in their 8 August 2010 ceremony.
Today I went out with a friend to photograph for a local contest. The subject is “Children in our neighborhood during Ramadan.” It was kind of hard to find all three things coming together to say “oh, that’s definitely children in that neighborhood during Ramadan.” So, throwing that idea to the side, it was nice to shoot with an idea in mind and having lots of children around made it even more fun. You can view the full gallery of shots here.
