Another market shot, this one from the souks of Fes, Morocco. These colorful silk scarves offered the additional elements of texture and patterns to make for an interesting photo, one that tells the story of place as well. Wandering through the souks in Fes, it is possible to follow the entire trail of a handicraft souvenir, from spinning silk threads, to the dying process, to the weaver’s loom, to the retail shop. The bright blue color is unique to Fes, making for a perfect souvenir. PHOTO TIP: Look for textures to bring dimension and depth to an image.
