Iftar at Süleymaniye Mosque

It is the month of Ramadan and Muslims break their daily fast at sundown with a meal called Iftar. It has been lovely to feel the atmosphere of Iftar around the city, and I was so delighted when a family invited me to photograph them breaking fast in the grounds of the sublime Süleymaniye Mosque. They have done this for the past seven years. I followed them as they played and prayed and broke their fast with water infused in strawberries and blueberries. The atmosphere amongst the people there is wonderful, and it was all such a pleasure I was hardly aware of my camera. Ramazan bayramınız kutlu olsun.
