    Hey Klaudio,

    You have put the vantage point to good use, the perspective and the light, the perfect time to enjoy this. the eight sides, one minaret is a very moroccan thing too but doesn't look eight sided from here.

    Btw you should stay, keep the weakening pulse alive, make it stronger, you and a few others form the aorta of the site, supplying the blood to the heart of this site which i call the TEmple..

    If cheating creates a good visual effect and end up artistic, why not !i like the way you have presented the detail of the dome, the textures are very much defined, nice work

    nice weekend.

    Love this photo, decisive moment it is, more alex webb kind of photo. what could have been different is moved around to keep the orange lever out, more minimalist, i am sorry i just have the old the habit of giving more importance to the "photograph", the technicalities etc.

    ciao.

    Lovely soft tones, a lovely slice of daily life, there is always a child in us. Upto us if we want to ignore it or or explore it..the woman on the extreme left, my first thought was that a nice juxtaposition with the mannequin but turn out to be the mother, the child looks at you suspiciously.."mama...why is that man taking out picture, tugging the hand of the mother."
    .
    .
    incidentally, arnold Schwarzenegger was at madam tussads few days back and was posing like a wax statue and people gathered around him and admired how the was model looked so lifelike..one woman said "it looks so real" Arnold turned towards her and said "I am real" and the woman screamed and freaked out but only to have a great laugh....

    take care

    This category of photos is precisely Cartier Bresson, he started it in the 30s, finding the abstraction, the geometry and waiting for human presence or the final piece of the puzzle. i think the two at intersection point with the two iron posts in the foreground could have been another idea..

    like yours too Mesut.

    The lights have been carefully crafted in the cave and you have done really well to get the enigmatic effect of this place, its more surreal thatn spooky. steady hands dear friend

    The rich details of the woman's skirt, sitting on the sidewalk, it would interest me a lot, but a warm daily life moment, and exchange of words, a greeting, sharing news, what could be more human ?

    or maybe it is the other way..Football means Brazil. I have forgotten the results of this world cup semi (was it) where brazil took a pounding. it was an off day in the century, i am sure all of brazil thought that..football on the beach, a way of life in brazil isn't it

    nicely represented, the octagonal little fountain place with the blue tiles, i am here for that, its elegant and something that characterises the middle eastern daily life, there needs to be flowing water around where you live. maybe a cue from the Holy Quraan where it is said in repeated verses that once you attain paradise you shall be staying in gardens where fountains and streams flow underneath...

    believe it or not, i could eat that all in a meal, maybe half the rice and the rest of it for sure, this typically could be ordered at any good indian restaurant. Indian cuisine has had its fair share of influences from the time of the Mughals to Rulers in Hyderabad who in turn were directly influenced from turkey and iran (the royalty from hyderabad used to marry turkish princesses for centuries)..

    i see a table served for two, you wife had a bite, did you eat all that ?

    I happened to flip through old photo books from time to time, weeks back it was Salgado's "workers". Manual labour is still dominant and effective in most parts of the world. i think it is a azritual, his photos portray the essence of that, work is worship and it only feels when you put your hands and legs into use. billions think like wise in india.

    lovely photo dear Klaudio, the symmetry of frame within a frame with another frame works towards the visual appeal of this photo

    My wife's boss is a Parsi a zoroastrian, and he had invited his team and spouse for dinner over to his place few months back. these photos of yours now i can connect because her boss talked about these mountains speciality mount Damavand, the spiritual mountain in north Iran.

    The eerie feeling, the atmosphere you talked about, i can connect, this photo is a great illustration and why not, you have done the handwork of running back to this pov to place the bunch of tourists bang in the middle of the descent..

    lovely mr Klaudio,

    Hmm this is the fun part of the tour, where all emotions and thoughts take physical form, you can see the celebration of faith, the mutual respect the acceptance, it is just wonderful to be a part of this.

    an important photo, the background make this so unusually intense.

    The streets of Yazd must have been fascinating, this contact truly is pristine in poise, in grace, in colours, what more can you ask for ? wish there was no background light in this one, just the workstation lights, her hands, her face, the woodwork..aaahhh...what a delight.

    Hello Klaudio...hah there are such beautiful photos and stories i have just gone through. this one catches first because this was the last view i had of Fes, the colours, the moment that felt like time travel. it is heartbreak for a photographer not to get the right light, but hey the clouds work like the gigantic diffusers, so to some it must have been the icing on the cake.

    what is it with the views system ? things have changed i see.
