|Waiting for Gas|
Tehran is a bustling city that is usually host to traffic and crowds of people who cross the street whenever they please. And while city life can be exciting it can also be overwhelming and exhausting at times. So many Iranians make it a point to take some time to travel outside Tehran and enjoy a slower pace, cleaner air and beautiful landscapes.
|Not sure of the title for this one but I really like it!|
Erdipa Wirengjurit (I just call him Dipa) is a very good friend of mine from Indonesia that I met here in Tehran while studying Farsi. He is, among other things, a very talented photographer. I decided to snoop through his files - with his permission of course - and choose my favorite shots to share through my blog and he was all for it. So all the pictures you see in this entry belong to him and were taken in Iran. FYI, he's also the one that took the picture of the pomegranate that I'm currently using as the header of my blog.
|What did you want me to buy?|
These corner stores, true to their name, are all over Iran from cities to villages. Some want to charge you more than others but don't worry, everything is negotiable here in Iran. Never forget to ask for Tafif (a discount).
Motorcycles are another common site here in Iran. They get through traffic quicker except on the days when traffic is so bad that even they are blocked by a wall of cars, and to get around that it is not uncommon to have to keep out of one of these machine's way as you walk on the sidewalk.
For more of Dipa's awesomeness you can check out his deviantART page here. He has more pictures on his hard drive than in his account but he is currently working on updating it. And this won't be the last time you see his pictures on my blog. I plan to continue using his talents in the future until he get's tired of it. I've asked him if he can take a few city shots as well, scenes that are quite different from what we have shared with you today.
So stay tuned and THANK YOU Dipa! You're awesome!
