Medina Cat

Another Moroccan photograph for your viewing pleasure. I’ve always liked these dark and mysterious b&w photos, with a subject in the light, here a cat. Note the two children way in the back, barely visible.

In a dark alley of the Fes Medina, a cat shines in the light. This Medina is the oldest in Morocco, built in 808. A Medina is the old, walled-in part of a city, present in most of the Moroccan towns.

Memorial Day weekend is passed, and the summer season is in full swing. I found someone had come up after dark, and left shortly after dawn, after camping right smack in front of my gate, building a fire ring in the middle of the road. I guess they were too lazy to clear their own area off the road.
