The Chefchaouen Blues

Spain returned Chefchaouen after Morocco gained her independence in 1956. Today the small town that sits in the middle of the Rif Mountains is a relaxing place to experiment with a few snaps. The quaint medina is dotted with mosques and peddlers selling wool garments, local goat cheese and original art work.

“Photography is a reality so subtle that it becomes more real than reality.” ―Alfred Stieglitz
