Shooting with Soul: Exercise 31 – Markets & Stalls

Exercise 31: Markets & Stalls

I actually struggled with this exercise a little bit because I just couldn’t find a market or stall that I felt was worthy of taking a photo of. But in June I travelled to Morocco and souqs are everywhere. Hundreds, if not thousands of them. All selling pretty much the same thing. Plates. Pottery. Tagines. Hats. Magents. Practically everything a tourist could want. This stall struck me because in all of the chaos of the souqs of Morocco, this one was so orderly. Everything is in its place and well displayed. You can literally see everything the shop has to offer without getting overwhelmed. And this isn’t that common.

In the summer of 2014 my Husband and I decided to take a road trip down to the south of France from Sweden to soak up some sun, and as I was deciding which books to take, I picked up my copy of Alessandra Cave‘s gem, Shooting With Soul. I ended up completing a good number of the exercises in the book but instead of doing them in order, like the book suggests, I chose to complete them whenever I felt the opportunity presented itself during that time. I also used whatever I had available in terms of gear, which was not a lot and many times presented a really limiting challenge. I did not, and could not, complete all of the projects in the book on the trip, so I shall continue them now that we’re back home in Sweden. This image was completed in Morocco in June of 2015.
