Fes

Fes, Morocco. The ancient, intricate medieval medina of Fes, Morocco. Take away the satellite dishes, the electric cables and lights and you’d think you’d traveled back in time to the 8th century.

    I guess you're right Faisal, it has a timeless quality, but in view of the "Arab Spring" they really need the accoutrements of civilisation. But a great pic with or without them...happy New Year.

    Wow, stunning view. It looks positively medieval without the modern accoutrements.

    Very surreal, and your processing is gorgeous.

    if those satellite dishes weren't in view, it would be like a trip back through time

    it has a feeling of being uninhabited.

    Great shot!!!

    Love the subtle sepia tone, works well in this.

    I like how the choice of black and white almost turns this into a texture.
