Dear Lord,

Dear Lord,

Please guide our president not to go to war with the proud people of Iran. I fear for my American son fighting in this upcoming war. I see in these pictures our humanity. There is no difference between our people. I can not bear thinking of tanks demolishing schools and homes being bombed. My neighbor bought a huge gas drum which holds gas so he can stock up on gas. He tells me that the war is coming before Christmas and gas prices will go to $6 a gallon! I can not bear watching the news. All I hear is drum beat of war with Iran. I was watching today (on NBC) the other day with our secretary of state. She says she would want to work this through diplomacy. Then she spends 5 minutes talking and lecturing Iran on what to do. How can you do diplomacy when you do not even want to resolve and talk? Dear Lord, help our humanity end this bloody war in the middle east.

Thank you for posting these pictures.

Surely you are being complimentary to those subhuman scum. I would put them as still crawling out of the oceans, the bastards that they are.

It takes taste to see beauty

by Alborzi (not verified) on

Back in 75 my American girl friend came to Iran and she was intimidated how fashionable the girls were in parties. Even today in Iran they pay a lot of attention what they wear under those chadors. Now the red necks have their own stereo types of Iranians, but just remember when Persians were building beautiful cities, these guys were still in the trees.

Are these inoccent people aware of the fact that they are being used as "models" and that you're publishing their images publicly? If they have not given explicit permission to be publicized, your action is illegal and imoral.

Just kidding... I found out Horizon is from my hometown AFTER I saw his amazing work on flickr and was searching for his bio. I wish he would say more about himself. Horizon: Your work is poetry with a smile. Zendeh baashi!

Horizon Jan,

This was excellent work. I love faces of Iran. My favorites are natural faces on the streets specially children and old folk. Thank you for sharing.
