The Lonely Alley

The Lonely Alley. Fes, Morocco. The otherwise bustling and packed medina alleys become deserted during Jumma prayers – and as a photographer that likes to photograph as little humans as possible – its the perfect time for me to walk thru the medieval streets and be transported back into the 6th century.

    Call me crazy, but this reminds me of photos of desert canyons like you can see here "". Humans mimicking nature?

    I had a chance to visit Morocco a few years ago, but I elected to stay in Spain for the rest of the vacation. Some of the photos the other people took on their trip made me regret that decision a little (but I didn't have a dslr camera back then anyway).

    Cool! Love the light in this, can barely tell what it is from the thumbnail, but once you open it right up is awesome :)
