Monkey In The Middle – Marrakech, Morocco

*Somewhere In Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy! This is one of my favorite photos from Morocco. It was taken in Djemaa el-Fna Square. It was our first night in the Marrakech medina when I spotted this unlikely duo. Djemaa el-Fna is probably the most chaotic place I have ever been in my life. It’s full of people walking & running, vendors yelling & selling everything under the sun and the immense…

Shop Girl Blues – Chefchaouen, Morocco

A young girl sits in a market in Chefchaouen, Morocco.

Somewhere In Time is back! One of my biggest resolutions for 2013 was to bring back the Somewhere In Time photo series on the blog. I’ve really missed doing it but last year we were so busy it became next to impossible to keep up with them. Here’s to 2013! I chose to open with this photo because it’s been one of my favorites for a while now and I’ve never published it before. I…

Capture The Color

I don’t normally enter a lot of contests but every once in a while a great photo contest comes along that I just can’t resist! The fine folks over at TravelSupermarket put together a fantastic contest called “Capture The Color“. You’ve probably guessed by now that the contest is based on color. This is actually pretty exciting to me because I don’t often shoot looking to capture certain colors so I had to really sift…

Tips for Shopping in the Souks of Marrakech

beersandbeans_marrakech_shopping_lamps

The souks of the Marrakech Medina at Djemaa el-Fna are a shoppers paradise. On this recent trip to the city of constant excitement we strolled through the souks and were amazed at every corner. There were so many beautiful items to gawk at. They all seemed to shimmer in their own way creating a yellow-brick road of sorts that led us through the maze of shopping alleys. If you’re headed to Morocco and wondering what…

Autumn Days at Djemaa el-Fna Square in Marrakech

Ringling Brothers Circus has nothing on Djemaa el-Fna in Marrakech. The former may be the “greatest show on earth,” but the latter is clearly the greatest spectacle on earth. If it’s not already, visiting the storied square in the heart of the city’s Medina should be at the top of your of laundry list of things to do in Marrakech. Entering Djemaa el-Fna is an amphetamine rush to the senses. Quicker than you can say…

Marrakech After Dark – A Photo Essay

6539649707_7e2d1041fb_b

Insanity. Madness. Non-stop Circus. Maybe if I was Allen Ginsberg I could come up with words that accurately describe the Marrakech Medina. It was by far the craziest place that I have ever seen. A constant assault on the senses, surreal & overwhelming. Mind boggling and unlike anywhere else. Marrakech was everything I imagined it would be and more. Snake charmers, henna hand painters, trained monkeys, hawks, doves and guinea pigs working the square for…
