Happy Norooz (Nowruz)

Happy Norooz  ( What is norooz? )  to all. I wish you all the best and happiness in the new year. I was walking around the traditional bazaar of Hamadan in Iran in march 2008 and taking photos. This is a tub in which merchants sell goldfish to be put usually in a fish bowl on the Haftsin table ( What is Haftsin table? ). Haftsin in a nutshell is a symbol for our new year. I think maybe the feeling we have about Haftsin table could be close to the feeling that people in Canada or US have towards a Christmas tree. This is of course only my opinion, maybe people have different feelings about Haftsin table and Christmas tree.

This photo is part of a project that I am doing about Coffee & Cafe in Edmonton. This project initially started as a feature assignment for The Gateway but I am planning to expand it a little bit more photographically. You can read the feature in this Wednesday's issue of The Gateway. I will hopefully post updates about the progress of this project as well.
