    Love the ironwork surrounding the door. Are these buildings abandoned? Or is something going on inside of them??

    Would love to enter the door, and find out whats behind. But it is also nice just to imagine what ‘could be’ there. This is a story-telling-picture. And these sort of pictures are the best.

    the door frame stands ot the most. i like the contrast in colors in this photo. though it looks dark and a little spooky inside. i still find this place inviting and want to see what’s inside.

    Morocco seems interesting but these photos don’t carry the same magic as the ones of people.

    I was happily surprised when I’ve seen photos taken in Essaouira, as I am a long-time fan from Morocco… hope you will visit us in Casablanca, that is worth seeing.

    I went to Essaouria and loved it. Absolutely beautiful and these pictures definitely capture that! Hope you had their grilled fish.

    Fantastic shot… Whenever I’ve seen architectural photos of Morocco, I’ve always been stunned. I’d love to visit someday!

    So much blue! Such a beautiful tory that only the picture can picture. Yet so much we don’t know and can try to imagine. This is why I love photography. Marocco is gorgeous and full of culture. I am so happy you are sharing these rich photos Scott!!

    Do you know the reason why the frames are painted in this turquoise blue? Because the flies don’t stand this color, and it keeps them from flying in the house. You can also it in the small villages in Siberia.

    I also have a fascination with the derelict! And in Marocco there’s lot of it .. Gorgeous pics as always. When are you coming to visit Portugal. Great sites to be seen and pics to be taken!… If you wanna come drop me a line.

    A huge contrast from what you usually post… luxury vs. misery. Sad.

    I’m so curious as to the idea behind these iron bars… such a cool hatched pattern!

    Love the design on these windows. Reminds me of the wrought iron designs we use on our windows here in the Caribbean. I’ve never seen this design though, it’s very interesting and actually modern for such an aged building.

    P.S.: I dig how the blue is so bright in spite of it being flaked and aged. I can imagine the saturation in its glory days!
