مراسم زار خاك در روستاي قورتان تقریباً نزدیک غروب آفتاب روز تاسوعا برگزار می شود.
اهالي روستا به دو دسته تقسيم مي‌شوند. يك دسته سادات و ديگري دسته عام‌ها (عموم مردم) مي‌باشد. سادات شال سبز يا مشكي به گردن مي‌آويزند وعام‌ها هم از رنگ‌هاي ديگر استفاده مي‌كنند و در هنگام شروع كردن و گفتن ذكر‌ها شال‌ها را مي‌گردانند كه اصطلاحاً به آن شال گرداني مي‌گويند.
دسته سادات ذكر اول را مي‌گويند كه عبارت است از: بهر حسين در كربلا، امشب ملامت مي‌شود – اين شام را صحبش مباد، فردا قيامت مي‌شود.
پس از اتمام اين ذكر، در حين اينكه نخل به حركت در مي‌آيد، مردم بر سر و سينه زده و يا حسين وشاه حسين گويان به سوگواري مي‌پردازند و نيز دوباره ذكر را جواب مي‌دهند. دسته سادات نيز بعدي را كه مي‌خواهد شروع كند به دسته زار خاك علامت مي‌دهد تا آنها به خاك بيفتند وسپس دسته سادات نيز ذكر بعدي را مي‌گويند و بعد از آن يا حسين، شاه حسين سر مي‌دهند تا ذكر دسته زار خاك تمام شود وهنگامي كه دسته زارخاك بلند شدند دسته سادات ذكرهاي بعدي خودش را مي‌گويد. هنگامي كه دسته زار خاك به خاك مي‌افتند سجده مي‌كنند و بعد از آن به حالت تشهد نشسته و با زدن بر روي پاهاي خود ذكر اول دسته سادات را مي گويند.

Abyaneh

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.

Boushehr

Me and 10 of my friends had a 3 days trip to south of Iran for photography. I haven’t been there before so I was excited to see the city and it’s people. South of Iran is always hot so we didn’t expect rain and cold days and nights there! We started our trip on Wednsday at 9pm, so we had to sleep in the minibus during the freezing night. On thursday noon we were in Genaveh harbour but the city is special for shopping and aslo it was rainy so the result is NO Photo! Our next stop was Boushehr, we had a motel to rest but we prefer to walk to the beach but seeing persian gulf at night was so refreshing for us. Next day we spend our time near the beach and it was near afternoon that we headed toward Asalouyeh. it is best known as the site for the land based facilities of the huge PSEEZ (Pars Special Energy Economic Zone) project. It was really nice at night but it was pollution that prevent us to breath well. Next morning, we visited Nayband protected bay near Asalouyeh. This area boasts of a variety of wildlife and from this point of view holds its own.


There was a boat near the beach and some of the friends got on that and after an hour waiting for them to come back we found that they had stuck in the water and with a white Tshirt they are asking for help! That day was an amazing day and we have to thank god that we are still here. In the way back to Isfahan we were in the storm too and I don’t know how we survived from tunder and lightening. Although I don’t have any good photo from this trip but now I have more experiance for travelling! 😉
