I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

This is the conundrum


A section of the dome inside the Imam mosque, the other mosque on the square.

It's a section because there's so much detail that if I try to post a photo of the entire dome it will just be a slightly mottled blur. And yet by focusing on only one section, I lose the grandeur of the whole. I've run into that over and over again on this trip -- the details, the patterns are so exquisite, but the scale of how they are used is just as impressive. You can't really photograph both, and most of the time, you can't even capture the scale with a mere camera.

So I guess you'll just have to go to Isfahan yourself if you really want to see the majesty of it. The details are yours for an extra click.
