During Ramadan I decided to go the local mosque and start a small project. I mentioned in an earlier post how I thought it was fascinating that there were people fasting during Ramadan in an average Japanese city.
But to be completely honest I found that I enjoyed photographing after Iftar (the first evening meal) more when people had left the mosque. People seemed more relaxed and the atmosphere was much friendlier. Apparently there are a few factions within the mosque; some that adhere strictly to Islam teachings and others that are more open to other ideas and people.
