The Pars Museum is a museum in Shiraz, Fars Province, southern Iran and is located in Nazar Garden.


The octagonal building was the place in which royal guests were hosted during the Zand dynasty of Iran. It was also used for holding official ceremonies.


It is also the burial place of Karim Khan Zand.


This image of shiraz jumping out of a glass was not created using Photoshop trickery; it is actual movement captured at a precise moment of time.


I shot this image for a client, having been referred by a photography mate who knew I had shot this type of image before.


This image was the first take in a series of many. Not bad for a second attempt at this kind of image!
