On the road along the atlantic coast of Morocco towards Mauritania, some kilometres north of Tan-Tan.
A few buildings and houses, a lot ruined.
Here, there were only the dogs left, bustled about a carrion.
A far west atmosphere, I waited for the harmonica to play.

La côte atlantique proche vue comme le farwest de l'Afrique, il fallait y penser. Dommage que les Indiens aient disparu.
L'atmosphère de l'image, brumeuse en s'éloignant, renforce l'aspect déserté, oublié du monde, de cette bâtisse étrangement ruinée.

It looks like a place that people have given up on, Yannis, and they didn't care enough (or weren't able) to take the dogs along when they left.) The image would be better in better light--it looks a bit drab and not as dramatic as it could. Still, it tells a clear story. Regards, Ken.
