Photographer's Note

A snapshot from the medival part of the imperial city of Fez - an extreemely fascinating place consisting of 9000 alleys (and at least as many carpet salesmen!) in less than 2 square km! Sough's (shopping/crafting districts) are packed with people, mules, goods and the tempo and noise is very hectic indeed.

The shot is a snapshot. I have mixed feelings about photographing people in everyday situations without their consent. A sad result is that this is my only 'people' shot from the trip.

I have just posted a tread in the discussion forum on the topic of the do's and dont's of people photography. I hope some of the great 'people' photographers on TE will contribute to this, important, discussion.

As for the pic: I like it because it conveys the huslt and bustle of the sough's well. Due to poor lightning conditions I stabilazed the cam on the back of a resting mule...
