Praying for the groom

Uploaded: February 21, 2004


A moment of prayer, as the local Islamic Cleric leads family and friends in prayer, after the offical signing of the marriage papers - the 'Nikkah' at a Pakistani Wedding.

Excellent shot Murtaza. It's amazing that you were able to take this photo though - I thought photo taking was frowned on. #99634

Thank you very much, Leanne!

Photo taking is frowned upon in certain segments of society. But, not all. Just have to be careful where you're shooting and who you're shooting;) #390416

No Murtaza, I am sorry. lol I used to have my gallery in my given name Margaret. Then when I switched my business name I desided to switch the name here to what every one knows me as...Peggy Wolff. That way, I can send potensial clients to my gallery to see my updated work. I have confused many people! Thank you for your wonderful comments. That photo was my niece so it was extra specail to me as well. #999877

Thanks for explaining, Margaret, if I may;)If more people know you as Peggy, then it's good business sense to switch to what everyone knows you as. It's interesting to know the background story to your name & to that very special photo:))
