Lens into Essaouira

This photo captures a bit of Essaouira, a small coastal town in Morocco, through the sea wall. It was taken standing inside the sea wall, through an opening in the wall. It was a rainy, windy day (as are many days in Essaouira) and you can see the townspeople, workers and birds in the background. This shot on a “regular” day captures the essense of Essaouira.
