Though this is a time of staying at home for most of the time, we luckily get the chance to leave our home for a bit. And honestly, I very much need this. When I think about it, I agree with this good friend of mine who told me once: When I travel I am my true self. As beautiful as summer time is almost anywhere with its happy blue skies, merry white clouds, bees and butterflies everywhere – my mind seems to need watching out a of a moving object, my whole body wants to bridge a distance. All I want is watching landscapes, cars, bridges and people fly by and also breath new smells, get fresh views, just be somewhere else. Not to forget finding new motives and sceneries for my photography.
In April and May my father and I travelled Morocco for a week. We only visited three cities: Casablanca, Marrakesh and El Jadida, but all impressions were really overwhelming. Of course I took pictures, although very often the foreigness made me a silent observer not so much a documentary photographer. For now I only will post a handful of pictures, some more you can see as a part of my 365-series of course. During that week my SHADOW-month ended and I decided on going on by the topic WATER. Have a look if you like.
Some pink wall and an olive tree at Marrakesh
Seen from the car the landscape is very alternating and dry, but still green in spring
A flat tyre, speed controls, but impressive landscapes
Just love the red soil
Once you got your tyre fixed you will notice the workshops just everywhere
After the desert and the dry Atlas mountains we reached the Atlantic ocean
