Both in Casablanca and in Essaouira one sees young couples display affection. Of course there is no kissing in public and normally no holding of hands; one does notice however young couples sitting close to one another often involved in private conversation. Such closeness is not seen the farther one travels into the interior. Maybe its the presence of the sea or the ocean which makes the people more relaxed about certain matters as they gaze into the horizon.
For the life of me I don't know why my f-stop is on 4.5.I didn't even know it until someone brought it to my attention. It's a wonder most of my Essaouira photos did survive such extremes..

A perfectly composed picture , on this charming "promenade" , with the fortress in the BG . All the elements , couple , benche , blue boats , lamp post , are very well placed . The clarity and the sharpness are exquisite anf teh fly of seagull is the final bonus .

With this young couple so engaged in conversation this is very romantic photo. They found a quiet spot behind the boat, not far from the very busy harbour. Beautiful view of the town walls and all these sea gulls in flight.

Essaouira, my wife and myself could be there sitting, but that was in August 1986. Since then nothing could separate us. Your photograph is loaded with a lot of good memories for us, we still remember falling in love. thanks for the sweet memories.
