. In this picture there are two Iranians boys just after going out of a football training in the Qeshm Island 🌴 . I was coming from Hengam Island with friends. I was intrigued by their sportswear equipment. I didn’t know that Melli Team and Portuguese team would be playing today, but maybe my camera knew. This foreseen power of the #camera
is one of the most enigmatic powers of photography for me, it sees what you can’t because at that time you were not paying attention. They were using old equipment from the national team of Portugal. I asked them why and from what I understood due to comic sanctions sportswear in Iran as very expensive making them impossible to buy by most of Iranians families. So apparently the national couch of Iran Carlos #Queiroz
that is Portuguese brought them some for free or for a few Tomans. The light in the left of the picture background is an oil field in the Persian Gulf. It is even more striking that a country that is one of the biggest oil produces can’t afford to buy sports T-shirts. This region in the Persian Gulf was an occupied territory of Portuguese Crown, with the biggest fortress in Hormuz, the beautiful dreamy island with the pink coral castle, Portuguese in XVI century didn’t know about oil or football just about Oranges. Oxála means Inshallah in Portuguese so I hope to be a good game for both and the best will win after all we are in the land of #Prokofiev
who composed the suite “The love of the 3 oranges”, maybe it was about this game already and the ball was just another orange 🍊 in his artistic mind.
