Magic Marrakech

Posted by on April 6, 2012

Marrakech is a photographers dream, and nightmare at the same time, Merv Didn’t just dont know where to start! I’ll tell the story of our exploits there.

And this is what we saw:

Basket seller. He had a thousand baskets and the market had a thousand of him...

Bringing the bunnies for a walk...

Imagine being able to loose someone shopping in a shop that's about 12 feet long, and 4 feet wide

No one with a camera around? Grand, I'll pick my nose so.

Bikes, carts and donkeys can all share 1 lane on the roads. Good for them. Not so good for anyone else!

Then it all changes at night time. The open square gets busy, and out of nowhere dozens of restaurants are assembled and open for business.

Light pours from under the canvas roofs of each stall holder giving a sense of magic to Marrakech. If a flying carpet were to land in the square, I don't think I would be surprised.

Everybody pays in Marrakech

We had a shower of rain that evening, which made for a lovely reflective square with the lights.

Sarah almost got a new job in one of the restaurants.

How fresh do you want your Orange juice?

    some great photos there.
    A bit annoying that I have to sign in to comment.
    also I’d like to see the photos in larger size, if I click on one (e.g great nighttime market one) the full size is still fairly small.

    Love the photo of the bloke on the bike with the mirror.

    Well, I’ve seen a lot of blog formats in my time, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen one which consisted of pictures of handwritten pages. It’s going to make indexing and searching a bit tricky.

      Yeah, We will need some OCR search software for that! Merv’s too lazy to type it in, and he thinks it looks nice. I’m not sure about it yet.
