Children wait as Muslims pray during a special prayer to start Eid-al-Adha celebrations at Sunda Kelapa seaport in Jakarta. Indonesian Muslims were celebrating Eid-al-Adha, the Muslim Feast of Sacrifice marking the end of the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca.
Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid” is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God, but instead was able to sacrifice a ram (by God’s command).Eid is also about spending time with family and friends, sacrifice, and thanksgiving for being able to afford food and housing. In traditional or agrarian settings, each family would sacrifice a domestic animal, such as a sheep, goat, cow, or camel, by slaughter (though some contemporary Muslims do not sacrifice an animal as part of their observance, it is still a very popular tradition, even in Muslim communities in Europe). The meat would then be divided into three equal parts to be distributed to others. The family eats one third, another third is given to other relatives, friends or neighbors, and the other third is given to the poor as a gift.(source:wiki)

"Photography is nothing—it's life that interests me", Henri Cartier-Bresson
The words that seem simple are have so big influence on me. Know Bresson further makes me interested in photojournalism. My love for the photography and then evolved into my love to capture the life. Not just make a 'beautiful' (in photographic) image but also has a deep meaning about life which is very interesting. And consciously or not Bresson always present in every photograph that I created. It's not about the style or photography techniques but about the message will be conveyed to the public. Create images that can speak more.
