Against the Wall

Against the Wall

A quick day trip to the seaside city of Essouria, Morocco, proved to be a fun diversion. The city, like most in Morocco, has a maze of narrow streets in the center, which are just fun to explore for hours on end. The walls, streets, signs, and almost everything else in the town had a unique texture, but one that could not be photographed by itself; it would have been too plain. But, in this instance, I found a young boy lending against the window, apparently sad or tired. Him being there added just enough subject matter that I could capture. Using the texture of the wall, the boarded up windows, and the lines in the frame, I tried to position myself to use these elements to draw attention to the boy. Zeiss Ikon, Zeiss 25mm f/2.8 Biogon, Illford PanF 50 film.
