The people in Morocco are wonderfully friendly, but many are not too fond of having a camera pointed in their face on the street without their permission. Most of the world is that way nowadays. But that is ok because there are many other ways to photograph a place and its people less intrusively.

Like here, I stood with my little camera pointed at this doorway to the Koutobia Mosque in Merrakesh.  Doorways alone are fine, but I kind of get bored with them after awhile.  Too inert – I wanted something organic mixed in!  So I waited until someone (or another cat) came by .  In this case, a man in a perfect white tunic riding a bike eventually came my way. I got lucky and managed to click with him right in the door frame.
