Market Day

By mattparryphoto      
Marrakech can be a challenge photographically compared to some places I have been however it does have amazing scenes like this one if you look for them. As soon as I passed this alley and spotted this scene it couldn't have been placed better. Good light, fantastic colours on the djalabayas and not a tourist in sight to ruin the frame! These people are buying fruit and veg.

This picture came third in the travel round of the Photographer of the Year 2013 competition run by Bauer Media (Digital Photo, Practical Photography & More recently (Feb 2014) it was shortlisted in the people category of the National Geographic Traveller Photography Competition 2014.
