Welcome to Iran !

Posted by
Franz (Baden, Austria) on 16 April 2018 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

Ready for a photographic tour of some very exciting and beautiful places in Iran? Well, here is the first image - of a lovely lady gazing through colourful glass tiles at the Nasir-ol Molk mosque in Shiraz, the city of roses and nightingales and love and poetry.

This is where we started our tour. We then went on to Yazd, Esfahan and Kashan before finishing in Tehran.

Everywhere we went, we met incredibly friendly and outgoing people, so that we felt very welcome and among friends the whole time!

thank you for your visits, comments and advice! they're very much appreciated!
