Photographer's Note

Qavam House (also widely called "Narenjestan Qavam") is a traditional and historical house in Shiraz, Iran.

It was built in the mid to late 1800s by Mirza Ibrahim Khan. The Qavam family were merchants originally from Qazvin. But they soon became active in the government during the Zand dynasty, followed by the Qajar and Pahlavi dynasty as well.

I took this picture in one of the rooms in upper floor.
A small, long and narrow square room with only one window providing the light.
I just desaturated the view from the window to add to the historical background and atmosphere of the house. I don't know if it was a good choice or not but I realy like it myself.
