WK42_col – Lusi, the board and the pomegranate

When Lusi got her board, she didn’t like the design on it so she decided to take matters in hand. The result was this beautiful artwork she drew with a pen.

Last I’ve heard, Lusi’s fine amd the board took some damage.. not sure about the the pomegranate..

WK41_col – Honda Vs. The world!

I randomly met Sean while in Casablanca where we were both servicing our motorbikes.

Sean had more than 60 thousand kilometres on his 1987 C90 travelling from from Alaska to the south pole, across  Africa and Europe.. during three years. A truly inspiring trip.

WK41_bw – Sometimes, I want to be little again.

Swings are great, they’re some of the first catalysers that make you get out out of your comfort zone as a child.. thinking too much can make you loose that momentum.

Get your kid on a swing and tell them to take a leap of faith!

WK40_bw – Queen of the night 2

Does the flower know it ain’t gonna see the night through? That fragrance, those colours and that bloom… I’m sure it does.

WK39_bw – Uncle Osman

This little fella goes by the name of “Ammi Osman” around where I live.

I tried google to get some information about its origin, but its seems nowhere to be found!

Looks like I’ll have to update this post later after carrying further investigations.

WK38_col – I serve people

One of the most arduous duties, yet very one of the most underrated one. You have to be a diplomate, an actor, an accountant… all with an immovable smile

WK37_col – Crockery in Impasse Tazi

Elders used to serve their food in fancy and colourful handmade traditional dishes levelling up to the quality of Moroccan cuisine… Unfortunately, nowadays these kitchenware are only used for decoration by the later generations.

WK37_bw – Urb’art 1

– Corto to himself: Wouldn’t just be great to live a fairy tale..
– Bouche dorée to Corto: Oh yes… But you’re constantly living a fairy tale and you don’t realise it anymore. When an adult enters the world of tales, he cannot get out of it anymore. Did you know that?

WK34_bw – Cat’s eye makes us human vampires

On a shot like this one with a human subject, I would see my reflection on the eye of the person I took a photo of. But it seems to be different with cats.

Cat’s eyes are designed to gather more light in low light condition, might be the reason why I feel like a blood sucker..

Experienced somewhere in Rabat, Morocco
