    Reported by:

    A man walking through the narrow alleys of the Blue City Chefchaouen in Morocco. When I arrived in Chefchaouen, I wanted to take a picture of a local person with that typical dress but I wanted it to be absolutely natural. When I saw this man, I thought it was perfect for my purpose, I got over it and I hid myself in a perpendicular street and waited. When it appeared I could shoot without him noticing. This trip was very important because it allowed me to take one of my most popular photos.

    A beautiful image of everyday life in Morocco. The colorful streets set the scene, and your patience to capture a natural moment paid off. Nice framing and composition as well, Angiolo!
