Essaouira, Morocco. 2007.

Canon EOS 400D

RAW. As is.

Happy hour at the local bar in downtown Essaouira.
Remember: Don’t Drink & Cycle

This feels like such a whimsical moment for me, I couldn’t resist sharing. Seems like the quietest happy hour I’ve ever seen – and by the looks of the empty chair – the doorman has disappeared!

There were scenes like this everywhere I went in Morocco. Every corner you turned in the winding streets of the Medinas offered something new and interesting. A photographer’s delight!
