Looking Up in Iran

IranUp (1 of 27)As some of you know I am mostly housebound for a few weeks as I broke a bone in my foot and I have to give it a chance to heal. Given last year’s injury, I am now the self-proclaimed “queen of the broken bones” though I am really hoping to pass that mantel to someone else, not that I would want any of you to be the taker.

But enough self-pity, as I was editing my images for my previous blog post on Iran (Welcome to Iran…), I noticed that I had numerous images taken from the ground looking up. In retrospect, this is not hugely surprising as the ceilings of some of the buildings In Iran are magnificent– the tiles, the colors, the shapes, the geometry, one just cannot stop looking up. And it is the case not only for the mosques but for an array of other buildings like bazaars, windcatchers, caravanserais,…

Though this is not the kind of photography I usually post, since I have a little more time in my hands, I decided to share them with you. Think of this as a bonus post! If this is not something that is of interest to you, stay tuned as the next post will be (mostly) about beautiful Esfahan.

But from now on I will make sure to look up wherever I go (and down and right and left so as to ensure no more broken bones).

Enjoy,
