Thanks to Nitish, lawyer and innovation manager at Allen & Overy, for entering the above photo in our 5th Annual International Lawyers’ Photography Competition. Nitish said:

Hi Colin

Hope you are well – please see attached my submission for the competition.

The first comes from the fabled city of Isfahan, taken during my trip to Iran late last year. At night the city comes alive on the banks of the Zayanderud. Nestled amongst the arches of the Si-o-se-pol bridge, a man takes in the atmosphere with his water pipe.

Nitish also kindly shared a handful of other travel photos.
