I am an art historian. When I saw this image, I was immediately reminded of a painting by the Italian Old-Master artist Annibale Carracci (1560 â€”Â 1609) titled “Butcher’s Shop” (c. 1580) and located in Christ Church Picture Gallery, Oxford.
Wow, that is some fabulous photo! That even the chain of the scale in the background and the door behind are so sharply in focus seems miraculous. The composition, the richness of colors and tones . . . I’m really floored, and I’ve been looking at your work for years. Have a great time shooting with your new camera in Morocco.
And now you’re freaking out all your vegetarian readers Scott :)
Hope you’re enjoying Morocco, can’t wait to see pictures of Mount Atlas, I had the most vivid dream about it some time ago, and I’ll never forget about it.

This is one of my favorite things to do in Morocco. Buy your meat, turn around and have it cooked for you. While it’s cooking you take a few steps and buy whatever fresh produce strikes you, then go home and eat!
If you happen to go to Essaouria, there is a large market and a great fish market. Purchase your fish and around the corner, in a side street is a tiny ‘restaurant’ where they prepare it fresh for you too. It is an incredible experience and delicious too!
OMG can’t believe you are in Morocco!!
I would love to meet you, it is sort of a dream. I am a moroccan Fashion Business student based in Paris, but now in Casablanca on holidays. I am also taking advantage of this stay to meet actors of the fashion scene in Morocco, for my master’s thesis. I am meeting Sofia Al Arabi today, awesome that you both met!! It would be great if I had the chance to meet you as well, and have you insight on fashion in Morocco. Enjoy you stay!
