Qashqai nomads of Fars, Iran, 1977

Qashqai nomads of Fars, Iran, 1977
Photos taken by my brother. Here is what he said about them in an e-mail:

[Pictures] are of the Fars nomad tribe whom we encountered between Shiraz and Bandar Bushehr. The Fars region extends from the lower elevations (and hot as hell in the summer) of the Gulf to the higher (cooler) elevations of the Zagros Mountain. They were leaving the scolding hot lower el. to the mountains. Hundreds of them in all, with probably sub-tribes all migrating in different valley's and creek bottoms up to the summer pastures. Shiraz and area is beautiful.

I had a funny verbal exchange with the young guy and (his dad)? on the small horses. I could speak pretty good Farsi by then. I was saying hello respectfully as they passed. When the young guy said something kind of challenging and made the old guy chuckle. I said something back a little cocky but humorous that made them laugh again. The young guy came back with something kind of sassy which made them laugh again. I wished them good luck and safe trip, the young guy said thanks same to you, go with god etc. which made them all smile and nod their heads."
