Taxi Driver - Shiraz - Iran by

I had to try a number of times to get this one as we were driving around in crazy traffic, swerving to the left, veering to the right, stopping suddenly when a motorcycle/car pulled out in front of us from side streets, accelerating madly and just general crazy Persian drivers all around.

Lane markings on the road are just there for decoration and if you’re in the lane the car next to you wants to be in then so be it, they’ll take that and then some! Every journey by car was an experience and I would breathe a sigh of relief when we arrived safely at our destination.

The following is from Wikipedia – Shiraz
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shiraz
Shiraz, Persian: شیراز [ʃiːˈrɔːz]) is the sixth most populous city in Iran and is the capital of Fars Province. Shiraz is located in the southwest of Iran on the Rudkhaneye Khoshk seasonal river. Shiraz has a moderate climate and has been a regional trade center for more than one thousand years.

    This is a super photo and great concept….taxi drivers always seem to have something dangling from the mirror…usually those smelly air fresheners. This is a funny photo. Good depth of field here too!

  • Thanks for your wonderful comment Grace, it’s greatly appreciated.
    In Sydney we hardly ever see things dangling from the mirror in a taxi which I think this is why I had to take this photo. I later noticed other dangly things in taxis but this was by far, the best.

    I can identify completely with your description. The ongoing jock when I was in Iran (3 years) was that to be a driver there you need nerves and breaks of steel, nothing else… Brought back some great memories… Thanks for sharing with the Art of the Middle East group.

  • Thanks Eyal, appreciated.
