“Dominating impressions from our two weeks in Iran: the shocking lack of Evil, the incredible hospitality and friendliness toward Americans, and what should have been a given–that Iran is a modern, developed, hip country with a well educated (and may I add quite stylish) population. I’ve broken down pictures into several galleries.”

    W ehave been thinking about such a trip for a long tiome now. It definitely won’t be this summer… Beautiful photos, especially the first one. Such a smart way to photograph the interior of a mosque with its symetrical and geometrical design. The picture is astonishing, it creates asymetry from perfect symetry…

    Sophia, it would be great to see you over here.
    True, Mellnick has a very original and spectacular way of picturing the interior of this mosque. I have seen hundreds of photos of “Sheikh Lotfollah”, plus many times this mosque, in the main square of Isfahan. Yet the photograph surprises me.

    Thanks for the video you sent me. Between these photos, the mall photos and the video I’m starting to feel at home! 🙂

    Dear BB2, this is all about the Pale Blue Dot.
    It was your home, you just couldn’t remember it!
