Portraits @ 21mm

I had my cute little 21mm/4.5 Zeiss ZM mounted on Fuji XE-1 and decided to shoot some portraits as I usually do with 50mm. Here is a sample test.

My younger brother, Kashif:

My cousin Waseem:

cousin Nabeel:

And my Nephew, Haris:
DSF22749

O well, the noses look a little bigger than usual. Otherwise, this lens is not good at producing distortion.

Enjoy. Any feedback is most welcome, as always.

Eid ul Adha 2015…The Kids (07 images)

Like every year, kids of the village are around enjoying the atmosphere and watching, with awe, the butchers at work. They love to pose for me and I think they expect to be photographed.
Here is a sample set:

Eid-ul-Adha…The Sacrifice

The fun part of this day is to arrange the animals and people (butchers) to slaughter the animals and prepare the meat. Since we are a large family, this year we ended up sacrificing seven bulls and eleven goats in two days.

The station where all this is done:

Butchers at work:

Eid ul Adha 2015

We, the Muslims, celebrate two special days in a year. first is called eid-ul-fitr which comes right after the month of Ramadan. The second comes right after Hajj and on this day we sacrifice animals following Prophet Ibrahim. The entire family gathered in our village and it was lots of fun and lots of meat. One big dinner is our family tradition:

BBQ:

And on open hot plate:

We generally leave ladies out of this cooking, for a change.

This is followed by insane eating:
