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!
Being fed up with city life and the toll its starting to take, we decided to pack up, and go somewhere! Anywhere! As long as it was far away and cultural – no 5-star hotel holiday for us!
What’s more quiet and serene than the Sahara Desert with the big hard sun in the daytime and millions of stars at night? We traveled around Morocco for three weeks, from Casablanca to Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Zagora, Essaouira, and back to Casablanca. We were lucky enough to experience the crazy medina of Marrakech, relaxed Ouarzazate, and the Sahara Desert (camel trekking and all), the chill vibes of Essaouira (with its Bob Marley loving people) and the typical city life of Casablanca.
It literally was as if one half of the world walked up to the other half and said, “WASSUP”!
Fisheye No. 2 has a 170-degree wide angle view and stunning barrel distortion. Now with a hotshoe and multiple and long exposure capabilities, the world’s greatest compact Fisheye camera is now more amazing than you ever thought possible! Available in different colours and special designs.
