Child on a Nakhel.

The city has a 3000 year long history, dating back to the time of the Median empire, when it was known as Ysatis (or Issatis). The present city name, however, may have been derived from Yazdegerd I, a Sassanid ruler. The city was definitely a Zoroastrian centre during Sassanid times. After the Islamic conquest of Persia, many Zoroastrians fled to Yazd from neighbouring provinces. The city remained Zoroastrian even after the conquest by paying a levy, and only gradually did Islam come to be the dominant religion in the city.

Hello Achim,
As the relations between Iran and U.S. are not exactly amicable at this time, I always welcome and appreciate photos from Iran. Fascinating to see the cute Irani child with the snapping tourists behind him. You metered this carefully as the image is sharp and well composed. My compliments...Danilo

Welcome Achim,
interesting scene in old city. Good captured situation. Nice portrait of young boy.

Interesting shot of this old city & young boy.
Interesting that you were in my country! I wish I knew you at that time so I could see you & show you more Iran.

Hello Achim
You were there at the right moment. Who is being photographed, you or the child. A very clear photo of this kid and all that mechanic around him. In fact, what is a nakhel? Good light and natural colors.
Nicely done

Good morning Achim
An excellent capture of the woodwork that had it been taken 100 years ago it would have looked exactly the same. Excellent sharpness and lighting balance

Hi Achim.

This would be so lovable portrait shot if there were no photographers behind the boy, but like this, IT IS EVEN BETTER! :-) Great atmosphere and so nice gestrue of this boy. Great work!
