I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Last day

A musician playing the local version of the bagpipe in the Armenian quarter.

It's fascinating to me -- and oh so frustrating -- how sometimes the best photographs take no work at all, just point and shoot and maybe clean up the exposure a little afterwards. 

As opposed to the picture of the bridge last night, where I had no plans or equipment for taking night shots and ended up improvising by setting a long shutter speed and setting the camera on a garbage can. For so-so results.

Iran has made it easier than usual by offering interesting subjects everywhere I look, and sometimes I get lucky.

Like here. All I had to do was take the picture.
