Some colors from Morocco – algunos colores de Marruecos – Farben von Marokko

A short trip to Morocco

We went on a six days trip to Morocco, combining the Jazz Festival in Tangier with a short round trip Tangier – Chechowen – Volubilis – Fes- Tangier. Not much to take photos, but a lot to see in a short time. Here I share some of my photo harvest – rather centered on things I love – color, abstract impressions, patterns and animals – on top of this list cats. There are so many of them in the Medinas! Wonderful! And carpets, and mosaics and ……Click on the photos to enlarge!

I was fascinated by the color contrast and nearly geographic patterns of the landscape, created by the yellow stubble and the very dark earth. First we thought it was burned stubbles of grain but it was the very dark soil.

The patterns of Morocco

Everywhere you detect the richness of patterns….this is just a mini insight of what we saw:

 

Animals in the Medina

The animals of course always captured my attention, and as cat lover especially the many cats to be seen in so picturesque places.

The Moroccan crafts

A specific skill of Morocco are the crafts – incredible fine things done by hand.

Beauty of every days life in Moroccan towns

These things fascinated me, such a decoration of every day life!!!

And this COLORS – a walk through Chefchouwen and other cities.

Guess, how I started my new painting?

Memories of Morocco and the blue town

and this one I call finished:

Moroccan colors and live

I will keep you posted where this painting is going.

If you like to see photos of a very contrasting country: see my photos of Greenland here.
