2 – 12 November 2009

You cannot mistake the religion  of this area. Five times a day, we would hear the Imam sing from loudspeakers of nearby mosques. I loved it.

Our WWF companion Sugiyanta or Mas Sugi as everyone called him, brought Yogi to an old Mosque in Binongko. After getting permission from the Imam for Yogi to photograph their prayers, Sugi disappeared to his own praying world.

I know ffrom Sugi that we all pray for the same universal thing. We both pray for safety, good health, happiness, peace . . .I know from Sugi that we all pray for the same universal thing. We both pray for the safety of our families, good health, happiness and yes, world peace These boys, after the first shy moments, gather around for the picture!These boys, after the first shy moments, gather around for the picture They stand with character and pride.

    Great to see a more genuine side of Islam than you might get the sense of from the Western media these days.

    These pictures give me a really warm human sense of real people just trying to live their lives – like anyone else.
