Photographer's Note

Nothing special, just the skeins of wool yarns. Maybe for making Persian carpets or other rugs. But I liked the colours.

Persian bazaars are a treasure trove of goods and handicrafts but shopping is not the only thing here. A visit to the bazaar is an experience in itself as it is an opportunity to get a glimpse of the lives of the local populace.

Tea sellers in their colorful attire, juggle tea cups in one hand while they pour the aromatic beverage with the other. People stop by at bakeries to get a freshly baked loaf of bread while others stop for a glass of sherbet or mash melon milkshake.

Ice cream sellers are inundated with people of all age groups clamoring for a scoop of ice cream. The air is filled with the aroma of kebabs cooking on skewers, burgers and samosas (deep fried pastries stuffed with mince or meat) and chelo kebab.

Women indulge in some window shopping at the jeweler and others step in to make that big purchase. People looking to unwind head for the hammam for a relaxing bath, families haggle with roadside vendors to get the best deal and money changers clamor for the attention of tourists while others sit at a Persian café sipping on black tea sweetened with sugar cubes.

In my youth, I used to knit various items. Now, I rather buy ready pieces.
