From The Corner of Your Eye. Black & White City

I went to a bookstore To look at glossy photography albums and strangers hiding in a self-help section. I went to a bookstore To feed my soul and stare into space for as long as I want. I went to a bookstore To find a stranger and borrow his life for a poem. I went…

All Things Shiny. In Morocco

‘Ooh, Shiny!‘ my visceral excitement walking through the doors of very precious looking Moroccan handmade pieces. I stayed there for a few minutes all by myself in a complete silence absorbing finely crafted artisan work. If you have ever been to Morocco you are probably wondering by now where I was able to find a quiet spot…

When a Smile Speaks a Thousand Words. In Morocco

When I told my British colleagues at work that I was going to Morocco all by myself they were concerned and tried to change my mind. You see, they feed their minds with fake news and fear, they choose to believe that love and kindness are not something we all practice. During my short, but the…

Fascination With Tiles. In Morocco

Sometimes I watch tourists taking pictures in my own city. I try to look up with them. Very often it is something I have never paid much attention to or have never even seen before. I wonder if one can be oblivious to the beauty of Moroccan tiles. A gentleman at the market in Fez…

Slowing Down and Inhaling the Blues. In Morocco

9 am. The driver is here. They gave me a seat at the front. I am the only one travelling without a friend. So happy. Will be able to take pictures through the window. It’s so hot. Why isn’t he putting an air conditioner on? I am sweating. The driver says another 3 hours to…

Moroccan Rug of Dreams

‘Stop taking pictures. Are you from China? Do you want to steal my designs? Why are you taking so many pictures? Click! Click! Stop now! One is enough. Stop it.’ I smile. I need more time and someone in a bold outfit for the shot I have in mind. The one that makes your heritage pop out….

Smiling At Strangers

Sat in a coffee shop, watching the world and taking pictures of strangers. Who knew? They smiled. Big and genuine smiles. Brits are not so miserable after all (got to work on my sarcasm). I hope you have a great day and I hope you smile at strangers. Surprise Harmony

Tourist in Your Own City. Black & White Nottingham

  I find it amazing that we go to the most remote lands in search of blissful moments. Looking for beauty and inspiration. Escaping the familiar. I wandered around taking pictures. I looked up. I passed by some streets looking at my surroundings from a different perspective. I tried to be a tourist in a place where I feel…

For the Lovers of Extraordinary. Greek Wander

Do you get stuck? I do. Trapped in an imaginary world of problems. Making failure plans and having nothing to look forward to. Misery can be so tiring. Why would anyone choose to feel that way? Then the imaginary happens and you snap out of it. I hope you do. Travel pictures always bring light…
