Sanei & Bronson

Grand Ayatollah Sanei & Charles Bronson.
Move the cursor over the image!

Grand Ayatollah Yousof Sanei is an Iranian scholar and a senior reformist cleric.

Charles Bronson was an American actor best known for his tough guy image who starred in such classic films as The Magnificent Seven and The Great Escape.

Thanks to Nima Mina for the suggestion.

Abbey Road 40 years on


My Iranian version of Abbey Road by The Beatles: Haj Ebrahim Road (Ebi Road) in Tehran.

On the 8 August 1969 -exactly 40 years ago- one of the most imitated album covers was shot in Abbey Road by the Fab Four.

Abbey Road Webcam - You could try to catch people imitating the Fab Four pose!
