Moroccan Roll

It’s been a month since I arrived back from Morocco and I think I’ve just about recovered! In my first post, Monkeys mountains and the Medina, I mentioned that everything in this diverse, vibrant place was enchanting and beautiful. As a result, I thought I should probably share a few more of my 4000+ photos.

I’ve gone for a less intense location for my next trip abroad, Berlin, but I’m sure it will still have plenty to offer my lens!

  1. More than 4,000 photos?!?! I can’t even imagine how much time it would take to simply catalog/organize them!

    Gorgeous shots — thank you so much for sharing, and congrats on your Freshly Pressed nod. Nicely done…

    🙂

  2. These photos are incredible; very beautiful. You have a lot of talent. Some of the best photos I have ever seen. I am sure that I will never see Morrocco in my lifetime, so I am able to live vicariously through your photos.

  3. Beautiful pics of an amazingly diverse locale – from the bazaars, to the architecture, to the Spanish cannon, to the pet monkeys, to the landscape. I have a Moroccan friend here in Chicago who has told me how his culture has been changing. Thanks for sharing your fascinating and creative perspective. I’ll be following. Happy travelling, and congrats on being FP!

  8. Thanks for reminding me of a wonderful trip I took to Morocco several years ago … I particularly like the blue images (window and pink and blue door) … beautiful and capture the headiness of the air in Morocco

  9. It looks like a very colourful place. It’s also interesting to see the contrast of the intricate archectural designs in relation to both the landsapes and some of the older wooden doors.

  10. Hi Morgan, Amazing work. I admire your interest in capturing the small things that many times go unnoticed. I also love your colourful collection. Keep them on, best wishes.

  13. I am currently using the same theme however I must admit I don’t know how to get my photos arranged like you did above. I usually just do one after the other. What kind of format did you select for this post? I need to get creative! I’ve only been blogging for a year now but still haven’t taken the time to really learn how WordPress works. Love the layout!!!

  14. Congratulations on being Freshly Pressed. Your photos are spectacular. I love the color and the opportunity to visit Morocco through your eyes. Best wishes.

  16. Reblogged this on Gealachs Blogg and commented:
    Ja, jag vet att jag “rebloggar” alldeles för mycket, men jag tänkte att ni skulle få se de här bilderna! Hur vackra som helst, nu vill jag verkligen åka till Marocko!

  17. Congratulations on being freshly pressed. It was a nice pleasant surprise to see my country so nicely featured this morning, and even more pleasant was reading all the lovely comments from all these Morocco lovers. Thank you for these beautiful pictures.

  18. hello, Morgan,

    thanks for sharing this long but wonderful composition. looking at the photos, it felt like i went there as well…a cacophany of scenes, colors and people, how interesting! regards and many thanks. 🙂

  19. Fantastic photos – you really get the feeling of being in Morocco – was there many years ago with no camera (how culd that have been???) would like to go again this time with one!

  20. I totally LOVE your photos – and Morocco!:-) If you like, have a look on my blog for videos and photos from the fascinating city of Marrakech:-)

  21. I absolutely loved visiting Morocco in 2010 when I had the opportunity to go with a friend who is also a very talented photographer! She took some of the same exact pic that you have up here and they are both beautiful! It was like a flashback going through these photos because i’ve actually been there. Glad you recovered! It took me about a month too! Crazzzzy place!

  22. Great pics, really. I´ve been to Morocoo twice and right now I´m planning my third visit. Recognized lots of places you´ve also been too. Congrats.

  23. Your photographs capture the rich beauty and culture that I remember from my own trip to Morocco in 2010. Thanks for helping me reminisce!

  24. Magical photographs of an exotic locale! Love waking up to your photographs–colorful, vibrant, and my two favorite photo topics: People and architecture.

  25. Gorgeous photos. I was in Morocco back in 1989 on a study abroad trip. I had forgotten how vivid the colors are. Such a beautiful country and amazing food.

  26. Fantastic!!! It’s on the top of our list of places to visit… 2yr plan. We’re off to Italy this year – yay for traveling what a blessing!

  27. A beautifully observed series. Wonderful detail selections, amazing viewpoints and fabulous colours. You have a great eye for photographic composition. Great post.

  28. Oh my goodness, what stunning photos! I’ve just written an entry on my blog about a Moroccan dinner party I recently attended. Your photos remind me of that wonderful night and just how much I long to visit Morocco. Lucky and talented you!! Thank you for sharing.

  29. Incredible! Your photos are absolutely stunning. Fell in love with the photo of the jars on the shelf. so many textures, shapes, colors and awesome shadows. Thank you so much for sharing of yourself with all of us. Keep up the fantastic blogging!

  30. Great photos. I especially like the cone shaped spices, keyhole windows/doors, and the amazing colors (especially the bright blues). Thanks for sharing.

  31. So beautiful, vibrant, and alive. My favorites are the purple wall/grate, the brown shuttered window, and the fellow sitting on the boat wearing the cap. Thank you for sharing your pics. 🙂

  32. My favs were the spices, the spiral staircase and the shoes. Such vibrant colours in so many of these photos, you captured Morocco extremely well. Just beautiful!

  33. Morocco has been my #1 dream destination since I was a kid – these photos are amazing and truly beuatiful! I can’t imagine anyone not wanting to go after seeing them 🙂

  34. Thanks so much for the post! Its brought back all the amazing memories from my trip to Morocco a few years ago. I loved Essouira and the orange stalls on Djema El Fnaa, the noise of the souks and the peace of the temples. We also went out into the hills and saw a different side of this amazing, beautiful country.

  35. These photographs are incredible, and they actually couldn’t have come at a better time because I’m planning to travel to Morocco at the end of this year/beginning of 2013. What region did you stay in, and what attractions would you recommend?

    • Thank you. I’m sure you’ll certainly enjoy it. I was based in Marrakech, at the fantastic Riad Khabia. I travelled to Essaouira on the coast, and then through the High Atlas to Aït-Benhaddou and Ouarzazate. I wouldn’t recommend Ouarzazate though, there wasn’t a lot there. Next time I really want to visit Fez, Chefchaouen and stay in the Sahara. Wherever you choose, I’m certain you’ll enjoy it and your senses will be overwhelmed!

  36. Oh I miss it so much!! Never would have thought to fall in love with a country. Thank you for the capturing the memories, they are priceless.
    I would definitely recommend staying in the desert next time, it honestly changed my entire perspective on life.
