The ages

Layers of construction and re-construction in a historic monument (Saveh Jame-Mosque). Each layer represents a generation who has succeeded in realizing his own ideas in a single monument in relation with what has gone in the past. I think we modern architects cannot add anything to this great phenomenon.

White pigeon and colorful tiles

I have already posted a few shots of the pigeons of Shah-Mosque, Isfahan. I was busy taking pictures of them for more than an hour in my last trip to Isfahan. I am going to post more of them.

Shushtar

This is not my picture. It was taken by an American archeologist in 1935. You can see the watermills complex from my previous post in the lower-middle part of the picture. As you can see the water comes from the river.  Posted by Picasa

Shushtar-No'w (New-Shushtar)

Shushtar-No'w (verbally meaning New-Shushtr) is a new district built next to the historic Shushtar, This award winning scheme is turned into a ghetto by its residences, I will post more of Shushtar later.

I have updated my friend's new photoblog address (nay-o-ney). He is a very good photographer.
