The first time I visited this mosque in Shiraz in 2008, I was so mesmerised by the colours in the winter prayer hall that I didn’t even take that many photographs – I just stood there enjoying the beauty of the light filtering through the stained glass. I did post one photograph from there which stayed with me all these years.
This time, I really wanted to go there very early in the morning and take some photographs, particularly using my 24mm tilt-shift lens and see what I can come up with in one of the most photographed mosques in Iran. I came away with a few photographs I like which I’ll post over the next few weeks and I’ll start with this simple one of the light reflecting on the intricate back wall. If you’re wondering why some of the walls don’t seem quite straight in the photograph, that’s because they are actually not straight in real life and I chose not to do much retouching on this one.
