About In the religious Zoroastrian complex in Yazd, Iran, the buildings an Temples of Silence, dating back to 500 BC, are covered with grafity and surrounded by motorcycles, tracks and litter. It's only a matter of time, before these monuments of human history are either destroyed or placed on the Unesco world heretidge list... Let's pray for the latter! Cheers, Hugo

Popping monnoes over the sacred! A disturbing portrail of beauty and reckless stupidity.

Great shot with really nice subdued colour.
This sort of problem can only really be solved by education as it's difficult to stamp out.
Best regards,
Graham.

The signs of the times....such a contrast between the past and the present. So well presented! And I like seeing a 'bit of history', something I've not seen before. (this building, that is) Picture also says 'boys are the same all places'...:)

I also like the composition of your photograph, very nice!

L ori :)

ps...thank you for your very nice comments...(also isn't it nice to see all the different places in the world, and all the different cultures?)

The first two images give a good overview of the site, and the tracks in image #1 and the appearance of the motorcyclists in image #2 give a hint of what may be going on. But this image immediatiely confirms the suspicion of the previous two: the historical site is used as a motocross track :( Image III does not need a story, it speak for itself; therefore, as a journalistic photo, I think it is the best in the series...

Ja inderdaad, de motoren hebben hier een essentieel deel ingenomen van de foto. Uit dit plaatje zijn ze niet weg te denken, anders zou het een saai geheel worden. Hier is de lucht wel weer prachtig open helder blauw. Omdat je ook geen grafitty ziet is het dreigende van het instorten van de gebouwen voorbij, nu maak ik me alleen nog maar zorgen over de motoren. (rijden zonder helm is gevaarlijk!!) De oude gebouwen zien er op deze foto niet heel speciaal uit, als je had gezegt dat het een gewone opslag was van een bewoner ze motoren had het ook gekunt. Dit maakt het wel een perfecte foto in de serie, je ziet zo alle kanten van de gebouwen! Hele mooie serie (alweer!!)
Groeten, Lex

A 'close-up finale' to a fine documentary series from the 'Serial Man' and I am not talking 'corn flakes or granola', but imho not one of these three images should maybe be rated (and I won't nor haven't) because I know you are making a quite serious photojournalistic statement of deteriorating conditions of a specific society although that is reaching global proportions!

Thanks for sharing your most sincere concerns and Best of Regards!

P.S. Are you or have you perhaps working on a editorial to be published?

I suppose our California desert is not the only one being assaulted by motorized idiots. this tells a story and is well composed, although I think the scan is not the greatest.

I'm reminded of this old song:

They paved paradise and put up a parking lot
With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin' hot spot
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They paved paradise and put up a parking lot...

Gerhard Hoogterp   {K:4863} 2/25/2004
Nice shot. Nitpick, but there's a dark spot in the right top corner.. As for the heretidge list, I guess the status blown up by the taliban were on that list too.. Tolerance and a standard of life high enough to care are what are needed to protect these kind of history.. after all, many a church or monastry in europe also disappeared because the farmers needed stones for their houses.. A roof is often more important than an acient pile of stones..

the fate of all religions without believers
(although thee are some left, I think - as the irreverent behaviour seems to be part of shiite fundamentalist hostility against zoroastrian 'fire worshipping')
