Every year, in the 8th day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar in KhmeiniShahr near Isfahan, thousand of people wear symbolic dresses to show the caravan of Karbala.

Abyaneh is a famous historic Iranian village near the city of Kashan in Isfahan Province. With a unique reddish hue, the village is one of the oldest in Iran, attracting numerous native and foreign tourists year-round. This time we went there in beautiful and colorful month, automn.

Although the village is really nice for visiting but it’s not a unique place for photography. There is lots of great photgraphy books from Abyaneh and everyone wants to take photo from old ladies with traditional dresses so recently they had installed a banner in the entrance of the village which prevent visitors to take photo from old ladies. But if you didn’t see the village, that’s a must for you in near future 😉

روستای زیبای ابیانه، اگرچه جاذبه بی نظیری برای گردشگران است ولی از جهت آنکه توسط افراد مختلف عکاسی شده دارای سوژه بکر نیست، امسال که در فصل پاییز به این روستا سفر کردم در ورودی پارچه ای با مضمون عکاسی از زنان روستا پیگرد قانونی دارد خودنمایی می کرد.
