Tough Stain – Fes Morocco

This isn’t what you think.  This man is holding silk thread and is in the process of dying it a bright red color.  I took this photo while I toured around the most miraculous medina in Morocco.  Here’s my excerpt of my fist impressions:

The moment you entered the big arched gateway you inhaled the smell, taste and sound of the markets. We were surrounded by the sounds of people and music, we could smell the rich spices intermixed with the smell of olives, and your eyes were entranced by the rich colors and textures that surrounded you. I think I honestly walked for the first 20 minutes with a dumb stare on my face as I took it all in.

I loved Fes…a truly cultural experience – and a treasure trove of photography.
