Another quick one from FES!

We were treated with a quick tour of what was described as being the most well-respected and expensive Moroccan and Berber rug showroom in the entire country. The owners were beyond nice despite knowing that I am a few winning lottery tickets away from being able to afford any of their wares. A boy can dream, right?

FES!

V and I recently ran off to Fes for a quick weekend before our visitors start pouring in.  Three days in Fes is nowhere near enough time to spend getting to know the city – we only scratched the surface of what the amazingly complex city has to offer.  Specifically, Fes is split over three separate parts.  The old city – Fes el Bali – contains the medina and much of the historic offerings of the city.  The new city – Fes Jdid – has a totally different feeling than the old city, as does Ville Nouvelle, the modern French…

Chellah – Rabat, Morocco / Hooked in Necropolis, Addict of Metropolis

Print Space NYC

While I am about one million miles away from New York City (approximately 3,500 for those that are  counting), I wanted to make a quick post singing the praises of Print Space, a New York City darkroom and photography space that I miss dearly.  While I can’t speak to the color processing space, I can attest that the B&W rooms are fantastic and I wish that I had a comparable facility over here in Morocco.  Coming from a gang-room approach to print processing, the private rooms with individual sinks and chemistry are a major luxury.  Furthermore, the enlarger heads and…
