“When the Best Photo Doesn’t Make the Paper. (Again)…” 12•July•13

This image from a Ramadan prayer yesterday in Newburgh, NY had to be seen in more places than just my paper’s website and my Instagram feed…  ~cg.

A man prays with his 4 year-old son during a Ramadan service at the Masjid Al-Ikhlas in Newburgh, NY on Friday, July 12, 2012. Ramadan is the ninth month in the Islamic calendar. It is a period of prayer, fasting, charity-giving and self-accountability for Muslims in the United States. The first verses of the Koran (Qu’ran) were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the last third of Ramadan, making this an especially holy period.  © CHET GORDON/Times Herald-Record
