yep, emotive and so fine in B&W… I like the simplicity of all your works. it help us to feel your photos!
Thanks very much for your comment, Mohsen. I do very much like simplicity in a photograph; that is actually one of the reasons that I like your photographs! Maybe simplicity is one of the things that allows the feeling or emotion of a photograph to come through? Or maybe simplicity is something that is beautiful in and of itself? Is simplicity related to purity? In any event, tashakor rafigh!
Bikhial Rafigh, Moraghebe khodet bash!
Oh, I forgot to mention it, I think Simplicity is just about the way you “look” around, not only that simple “seeing”..Take care my friend, Keep up your good works!
Baleh, Rafigh! Fahmidam! It is hard to talk about the meaning of simplicity in photography. Maybe we are trying to explain what is unexplainable; or maybe this Persian saying applies? “Cheesike ayan ast, che hajat ba bayan ast.” Ha ha, I’m not sure.., but it is an interesting subject! What I do know is that in the end any vision or gift that a person has comes from God. And it is obvious from your work that God has blessed you, my friend! Khoda Hafez.
Its one of my favorites Shot!!
