Weekly Photo Challenge: Unfocused
I know what you’re thinking: What am I looking at? You are standing at a bright blue door in Rabat, the Fortified Place, capital and third largest city in Morocco. For a while I thought I had lost all of my pictures from our 2007 trip to Morocco; I cried several times. I fall in love with cities (sick, huh?), so losing an entire country hurt. I had wanted to visit Morocco ever since my itty-bitty taste at Epcot Center back in 1986. The colors, spices, culture and food fascinated me. On vacation, I can even tolerate an overwhelming crowd like Djmaa el-Fna Square.
I wasn’t blogging back then, and perhaps it’s just as well. I would not have been able to keep up with the pace of a blissfully exhausting, seven-stop, eight-day tour; my camera barely kept up with the dizzying scenery that flashed outside the bus window. Thankfully, I recently discovered that I had not erased the card after all. The digital version of the trip is alive and well. Now I make a cup of mint tea, park myself on the couch and watch the slideshow.
Back to the door. This is what it looks like without my glasses–unfocused.
