Qashqi Ladies - near Shiraz, 1978

By GeorgeP
Another Kodachrome slide taken in Spring 1978, projected from an obsolete Bell & Howell slide projector and photographed using a Pentax K5 with a Sigma 105mm f/2.8 macro lens. The original camera was a Pentax Spotmatic probably with a 50mm f/1.4 lens.

The photo was taken on the road between Shiraz and Gach Saran in Southern Iran in the spring of 1978. The grasses are in full bloom(?) and the Qashqai nomads were moving from their winter grasslands near Shiraz to higher pastures in the northern mountains. These two women had just rescued a very young goat that was having trouble keeping up. It was carefully bundled into the saddlebag of this donkey to be carried like a small child.
