@Christy: It really was. I can appreciate the hesitancy, but our experience demonstrated to us that Iran is safe, certainly much safer and enjoyable than media coverage would let on.

@Andrea: Glad we are able to communicate something a little closer to reality about on-the-street Iran than we might get through traditional media. Glad you enjoyed the panorama, too.

@Frank: Thanks for such a kind comment. Exhilarating, human and humbling. We are grateful for such a gracious characterization.

@Azeem: The history of Islamic architecture throughout Central Asia is impressive. We remember our time, especially in Uzbekistan. Iran definitely has some of the most representative works for sure.

@Jeremy: Was one of the many amazing places throughout Iran, really. Glad you like the panoramas…more coming.

@Jessica: Glad you like the panorama. It seemed a fitting way to capture some of these interiors. Enjoy your travels in the Middle East.

I am so excited to see such beautiful image – I especially love the way you featured it as panorama. The tile work is so amazing. Nice shot!

The Islamic architecture what you can call it as. There are some dome architectures i visited where it echoes the sounds. Though it is ancient, the people then had great thought for architecture which is lacking even today.

I love it when people can report that their experience of a country are so very different to the perceptions we have through the media.

Love this panorama too :)

I’m so glad you two are in Iran so I can experience it vicariously through you – I’d love to visit sometime, but right now my partner is a little on the hesitant side. :)
