In a van on the way to the Erg Chebbi dunes on a particularly dusty day.
Here is part two of my journey, detailing our travels in Morocco. We flew out of the Paris-Beauvais airport and landed in Marrakech where we met a friend who would stay with us for the duration of our trip.
The number of stray cats was astounding.
And then we hopped a train for the 3.5 hour journey from Marrakech to Casablanca.
And then we left Fes in a van on our way to the edge of the Sahara. I suppose I'll end part two here, because there are already so many photos in this post. I'll do a short part three shortly. Maybe. We'll see.
So I went on this trip...
My journey began in London with a friend.
That's him down there.
Returning to London after a couple years was quite a nice experience. I really missed it from the semester I spent studying there.
The last time I carried a less capable camera, and perhaps a less experienced eye for photography.
Not to say I'm any more experienced now, of course.
We naturally went about looking at all of the sites. Churches, monuments, things, etc. The weather was quite pleasant.
After a few days in London, we boarded the Eurostar and made the two-and-a-half hour ride to Paris.
An image from out the window of the Eurostar while we were rolling through the French countryside. Mighty pretty out there, and boy is that train quick.
I feel like I've seen that thing somewhere before, but I'm not totally sure where. It sure was tall and quite metallic.
I wasn't totally sure about this horse and its significance, but it sure looks intense.
Shortly after the above image, we met with a friend of my friend who just happened to be in Paris at the same time. What a small world!
After meeting in that royal park or some such nonsense, we acquired macaroons from supposedly the best macaroon place in Paris (and also a macaroon ice cream sandwich because there was a minimum purchase). I'd describe them as reasonably good. Afterwards, we made for some mall with a dome.
So there we were atop this mall with a dome. Turns out it had a pretty decent view too.
We then parted ways with his friend, and the next morning, France. The next stop: Marrakech, Morocco. But those photos will be up in a second part.
Yesterday was the birthday of a friend, recent graduate, and fan of this blog, and I will embarrass him by posting this along with an image of him. It is a day late, and I'm sorry for that. If it makes it any better, I started this post on Tuesday. Anyway, happy belated birthday!
Forgive my lack of posts. Trying to edit all of these photos in such a short amount of time really burnt me out. I promise to bring you a lengthy post with many photographs within a week. I have a couple things to say about this photo which I've organized into nice bullet points for your convenience:
- This is one of the reasons I haven't posted anything. I finished it the other day and if you look closely you can tell I didn't really finish it, but rather just called it a day.
- It is many many many photos and is a very very large file on my computer. Taking this many photos in almost a complete circle meant my camera was up to my face for rather a long time. This draws attention to you. After I finished, a man came up to me and asked me to take a picture for him, then asked me to teach him how to use his camera.
- If you want to download it to see it in its full glory, life sucks for you. You can't! You see, if I wanted to upload this at its full size, it would take approximately the rest of time.
- If you wanted to purchase it (hahahahaha!), I would actually finish editing out the lines which may not be apparent in this small version, but would definitely be apparent on a print on a wall.
- Napoleon's apartment is ludicrous.
Did I mention I have a Tumblr? Yes, yes I did, but I'm going to mention it again. Kyle Cameron Photography on Tumblr!
Why did I bring this up again? Because I'm about to bring up another person on Tumblr, inkyletters. I'm starting the first part of a collaborative project today with Inky Letters that will involve lettering, people, stories, photography, and video!
I'm somewhere over the ocean.
I've been feeling like a lot of my photos are missing character, and this one feels like it has a reasonable amount. In addition to that, I just think this is an interesting image, though I'm not entirely sure why.
I mean, you don't have to smile if you don't want to. This chalk on concrete isn't a dictator trying to force you to live its concrete lifestyle. It's just a suggestion. If you want to smile, you totally should!
