Photographer's Note

Hooka preparation at Darband, North of Tehran, A place for people who love fresh air of the mountains. The photo was taken at west path of Darband valley in a summer day when I was returning home. The path was crowded and I had to crop the original photo to fit. He is putting charcoal fireballs on a hooka by means of fire-tongs. Using Hooka was a tradition in Iran which is now being popular among the youth unfortunately. Don't we think we go to mountains to get rid of dirtied air of the most polluted city of the world!
