the Berber man

The next few posts will be taken and uploaded with my iPhone as my laptop is currently packed away in storage back in Madrid. This will be the easiest and most efficient way to keep up with my posting.

This image was taken in a small mountain village in Northern Morocco (and personally a long time favorite place of mine) called Chefchaouen. A man in typical Berber clothing makes his way through the small but extensive, sky blue painted, Medina.


The Gossiping Ladies

As I was slowly making my way through a Medina in Essaouira, Morocco, I kept hearing the chatter and laughter of two ladies behind me.  Not being able to distinguish a word that was being said, I could instinctively understand that they were gossiping about something or other.  Thinking they would make a great photo opp, I quickened my pace and found a little stand just off to the side of the road.  As ‘photographers luck’ would have it, this beautiful mirror was placed in the perfect position for me to frame this shot of the two gossiping ladies as they passed me by.
