About 6 months ago I was in a Pub, or was it a coffee shop? Either (or both) is just as likely. Anyway, I was catching up with a few local photographer friends of mine (ok one was a videographer – big difference I know!) and we were chatting about what our plans were for the end of the madness which is a wedding season. Obviously the normal Christmas celebrations, ski trips and time with the other half were on the cards, however one way or the other we got on to the subject that it would be cool to all go on a little bit of an adventure with each other and, with already having a ski trip booked, the idea of somewhere with a little heat was certainly welcoming.
The subject arose of Morocco, a place 3 quarters of the group, including myself, had never been. That sounded good! and after a quick look on (watch out for the plug) easy jet with flights from less than a memory card, we were booked for a weeks adventure in Morocco which ended up being a fairly ‘relaxing’ 1000km return trip from Marrakech to as near to the Algerian border that was possible without getting on a humped horse.
I had a blast. I think we all did; Sun, City Madness, Friends, the Open Road, Desert and a couple Sand Storms!
It was an adventure but a fairly simple and easy one at that, we even managed to meet some other industry friends whilst we were in Marrakech drinking plenty of Mint Tea.
Ultimately we just went for the purpose of the trip itself and a few laughs, but I suppose inevitably a few pictures were taken along the way and here are a few of mine, all shot on a Nikon FM2 using Kodak Portra Film and a 35mm lens.
More on Weddings next time. :)
