Photographer's Note

This is my very first pic on Trekearth.
Shot in Bandar Abbas, Hormozgan. The Iranians maintain that no religious taboo explains the wearing of these masks: rather is it a fashion which originates from the period of the Portuguese occupation when ladies wished to walk about unrecognized or simply to protect their complextion from the scorching sun.
Thanks for your feedbacks...
