جاز در پارک


redwine jan, our friend was listening to jazz, and wrote that on a piece of paper.  no, this was a local jazz band--not irani :(

as for why these pictures which have nothing to do with iran/iranians, well, an iranian took the pictures :)  btw, pic 52 is a gorgeous young lady, who is 1/2 iranian, 1/2 danish-

we are truly blessed to be living out here in sf bay area..but i do miss my country dearly and can only dream of such events occuring back home :(


Jazz dar park

by Monda on

Red Wine jan, traditionally each county has its Jazz music at a local park. Started off with Golden Gate Park in SF, as free walk-in all day jazz concerts.

Our county has Reggae and Classical music at the Parks too. You can bring your own wine, cheese, blanket and have a nice day in the sun 'til you're crisp (not joking).

If you ask me, it's a great idea to have Persian jazz, rock, classical, etc. in the parks too.

Very Nice summery photos Faranak jan, especially: 1, 7, 13, 57 and 59 (reminds me of "coldest winter I had was the summer in San Francisco"? :o) Beautiful shots of children, dogs, food and scenery.

Dear Faranak, thanks for sharing with us your pictures. Fruits, yogurt, wine and laughter, Jazz music with a Persian sign for it. You cannot go wrong like this.


Nice pictures. Some are good enough to be used for ad campaigns

Yes we can

Thank you Faranak Jan. Every frame makes me smile. This is the new home away from home for many Iranian Americans. Full of beauty, happiness and prosperity. It makes me think: Why can't we have the same in Iran? We can.


Mutts, maybe. But those butts ain't Persian

I was always timid about questioning JJ's judgment, and am more so with his new tough-looking avatar. However, I'd jeopardize my existence by asking where one can see the Iranian element( it must be called the Persian element, in the Bay Area) in these photos which made them qualified for the first page.
