Laft Mosque

I will not forget the calm, perfect, sacred, appealing, and pleasant atmosphere of this humble mosque. It should be THE highest ideal of an architect to reach to this mastery over the expression of presence and being, as Louis Kahn said: silence and light.

Cat and snow

I like cats very much, I shall admit, and I think they look even more beautiful during cold winter days. I couldn't help myself not snapping this beauty at the door of a garden in Emameh. She has beautifully found herself a comfortable place beside the snow.

No description!

So red, so fresh, in the middle of winter. Any body knows its name?

This is Maziar's fortress

We went on a one day trip with university students to Emameh, a village in north-east of Tehran.
There's fortress up the cliffs in north of Emameh that is believed to belong to Maziar (9th century AD). Here in this photo my colleague is showing it to us.
