Very nice images, congratulations!

I lived in Morocco for two and a half years in the 1990's, but ironically took less photographs during that period then any time in my adult life. I had my Contax 167MT, a few lenses and a Minox 35GT, but every time I pulled out my camera everybody and his dog would appear from nowhere trying to get into the photo and demand money! In the end I rarely took my camera anywhere with me.

Thank you! Yes, I know what you mean. Marrakesh was the worst in that respect. On the other hand, smaller towns (e.g. Essaouira, Moulay Idriss, etc) and the berber villages in the Atlas mountains were much more relaxed, and people didnt mind being photographed. Fez, the spiritual capital of Morocco, was also quite difficult, but walking and literally getting lost in the thousand years old Medina was an interesting experience.
