    Your "Velvia" technique is very interesting, especially with blue colour in the image.........good stuff
    Thank you so much for the kind words. M8 might be old, but still a superb
    machine for my needs.

    Hi Hermann. So glad you stopped by. As usual, your kind and generous comments allow me to take my camera with me. Thank you.

    Kindest regards to all three.

    Hi Rayyan.


    with your images, you have made ​​sure that I have wanderlust.
    In 2008 I spent 4 days in Marrakech.

    The city is unbelievable dreamy ... a fairy tale

    Here are some of my impressions.

    The mules, the alleys, the sights and smells!!

    Lovely place.

    The Color and Mystery that is the Maghreb has yet to be told.

    But, we as travelers have to leave. For someone else to continue this story.


    Thank you for being with us.

    Rayyan: Thanks a lot for telling your part of the story of Maghreb! Thanks again for sharing your beautiful pictures (colors as well as B&Ws). And keeping my fingers crossed that the Nikon will be in great shape as well as the Leica for your oncoming adventures to share with us .

    Thanks for looking in. For me looking at an image itself has altered the image.

    I wear specs!!

    Different sensors and lenses would render the images differently. I just

    paint them to be what I think they should look like..also an excuse for me

    to make up for my being a bad photog!

    My least unprocessed image is from the wilds of Casablanca..


    Thanks for looking in and take care.

    antphot, you are too generous with your words. I am embarrassed.

    Honestly, most people could have taken similar or better images. Just by looking around.

    Thank you very very much.

    First.. In Arabic, Morocco is called Maghreb. In Arabic, ' West ' is also called

    Maghreb.

    No, I do mean Maghreb.

    In Arabic, a city is called Medina. When people refer to ' Medina' in the context

    of a city in the Maghreb, they generally mean the old part to town. Although

    Even in Maghreb, one can see traffic signs nowadays pointing to the ' Medina

    al- Jadid ( the new city ) or the Medina ( Medina Al-Gadeem )..the part you

    seem to refer to.

    Indeed the image might have been taken in the ' Medina ' or ' Medina al-Gadeem ). But definitely in the Maghreb.

    Thanks for stopping by and best regards.
