    Morocco from My Fisheye's Point of View

    Two South African girls fed up with city life, packed up and decided to backpack through Morocco and travel the Sahara desert in June 2012. We did this with no preceded planning except for buying the airline tickets. This turned out to be the most magical and enlightening trip we've had, and not in the least bit as scary as everyone warned us it would be. I documented everything I laid my eyes on with an 100 ISO color negative film and my Fisheye 2 and experimented with a 50 ISO expired film that also went through the airport scanner. This trip made for some interesting pics. Enjoy!

    The Kasbah on the Other Side of the Oasis

    Tiny Meski Oasis in Morocco isn't well known. In fact, it isn't even mentioned in any travel guide or has many hits on Google. However if you happen to be passing by, be sure to allow yourself a few hours to enjoy the views over the oasis from a royal height.

    La Mamounia - Oasis of Beauty

    La Mamounia - the eye candy of Marrakech. After a day spent wandering around dusty Medina and souqs, it was still too early to return to our hotel so I suggested we check out the only Art Deco building in town - Hotel La Mamounia. I am a big fan of Art Deco style in architecture, so for me it was a must.

    Mellah - Jewish Marrakech

    Catch the ghosts of the past on the streets of this former Jewish district of Marrakech. Mellah used to be Jewish, but not anymore. A lot has changed since the 16th century, the area is Muslim now, and all the Jewish people have moved to Casablanca, Israel or somewhere else. According to the reports, only 250 of them are left.

    Kasbah

    Kasbah district in Marrakech, a place which seemed to have resisted change that comes with time. However, the main reason why we went to this area was the Hammam. It was my birthday so I decided a visit to a spa would be nice.

    The Blue City of Chefchaouen, Morocco

    If you've looked at a tour book of Morocco, no doubt you've seen photos of this city. Shades of blue can be found everywhere, the entire town melts into the sky. Located about 2 hours from Tanger, in the Rif mountains, this city is nestled into the hilltops and is a site to behold. The city is blue thanks to it's original Jewish inhabitants, but has an Andalusian feel at the same time.

    Marrakech, Morocco Just like in Arabic Tales

    Marrakech is a beautiful Moroccan city so filled with old Arabic world charm - like what one would imagine when reading an Arabic tale as a child. The Medina, architecture, dusty pink colored walls, winding alleys, friendly locals, traditional medicine stores, souks, amazing chaos in the main square..... all make Marrakech a truly memorable and unique destination like nowhere else in the world.

    Some images from the town of Tiznit and nearby Aglou. Tiznit is a beautiful walled town about an hour's drive south of Agadir on the N1 road. I took a shared taxi all the way which worked out really cheap.

    Casablanca

    Do you remember? Bogart is wonderful as the mysterious café owner with a past, set up in the nightclub business with his longtime friend and piano player, Sam. His haven is disrupted when his one-time love Ilsa arrives in the company of a world-renowned resistance leader Victor Laszlo, whom the Nazis would very much like to get their hands on. Bogart and Bergman shine in this movie. The gorgeous black and white deep focus photography adds a nostalgic air of beauty and elegance to the movie.

    Morocco

    Not very far from my country (Portugal) I found another world, another culture, another way of living. Morocco, land of contrasts, different cultures and religions, where you can see the inheritance of the Arab world, its architecture and traditions.
