Aaaand another post that is backlogged from Morocco...

This was the second shoot Alex and I did in Morocco right as I finished Arabic classes for the day, as you can probably tell by my still stiff and awkward gestures. We shot this in the alleyway behind my apt, trying to find the most remote and desolate location to break out the camera and (according to my friends apparently repetitive) posing. To our dismay, it turned out to be a rather busy residential street, and stares from the passerbys were not uncommon. Fortunately for Alex though, she was crouched down and remained well hidden and blended into her surroundings, and the lens she was using required her to stand at a further distance from me. So for the onlookers, this basically left me what looked like alone on the side of the road pretending to pose for no visible camera. So that was a lot of fun. 

I tried to stay away from the regular black scarf in Morocco, as it attracts heat and that's the last thing I wanted to do in an African summer, but I had to try to add a neutral to the monochrome green patterns in my blouse and trousers, as Moroccans mostly did not seem to be used to my usual intensive pattern clashes yet. Got to tone it down now and then ya know? Paired it with a black bag and shoes to try my best to nicely round everything off in a non-overwhelming way~
