Images of Tehran from Flickr


  • Tehran is a lot greener than I would have imagined. Beautiful photography.

  • Johnno, have you gotten into Iranian cinema? Whenever I see the life on Tehran streets, as portrayed in films, I can only wonder how my feller 'mercans can even think for a moment... (West LA has a huge Iranian community). Just a couple of weeks ago, I enjoyed Kiarostami's The Wind Will Carry Us

  • OB: Yes. I found the landscape and scenery completely at odds with what I expected. Although this first occurred when I saw a news story with a fire in Iran some months ago. Several brand new European fire engines parked outside some fairly normal looking apartments.

    Pete: I think I've seen a couple but will try to check out more, I saw Cherry Tree some time back. There's a reasonable "Persian" community here too.

    And yeah why would anyone want to bomb that/them? More organized theft perhaps?

    That guy with his father look like a pair of rather likeable fellows.
