THE CHESS PLAYERS - TEHRAN, IRAN

My very first day in Tehran. It's been a year full of exciting travels and explorations, but to this one has them all beat. Such an amazing place.

After a long day of losing myself in the chaos of people and traffic I was happy to relax a little bit in Park e Laleh, where I stumbled onto this group of elderly men playing chess.

Crows crowed, cats meowed and chess pieced hopped and hopped.

Here I met fellow sketch artist Helia.
