Photographer's Note

My previous shots of the ancient town of Abyaneh featured narrow streets and well preserved old buildings. Near our hotel, somewhat distant from the old town, but within walking distance, I saw and photographed modern houses with large enclosed courtyards shaded by trellised vines and surrounded by fruit trees. They were definitely lived in and I assume the months of tourism must be lucrative enough for families to build bigger and more comfortable homes. I cannot tell whether for the rest of the year it is the grandparents who are the caretakers of these houses while the son or daughters and grandchildren work and study in the cities. As I wrote earlier, I did not see many children in this town.

WORKSHOP shows another example of these more expensive houses.
