DescriptionFriday the 13th is supposed to be unlucky but I was so lucky this day. I went to Nahjolbalagheh Park in west of Tehran (Iran) to take a photograph of the crescent Moon near Venus. I took 5 photos, but after that suddenly I surprised by fireworks in front of my camera. So Friday the 13th is a lucky day for me.
