Candles for the dead

Sorry for not having posted anything for weeks, to make up for it here is a series of 3 photos taken in Isfahan a few months ago now (time flies…). After some quiet time in Tehran I recently went back to Yazd and Isfahan, and went for the first time to Shiraz and Persepolis, so more pictures should be coming soon.

During the Achura celebration we went to the city’s cemetery where martyrs of the war against Iraq are buried, and witnessed many gathering to pay respect to their lost family or friends, burning candles or bringing flowers.
