Around the Mellah, Marrakesh (Copyright: Jerome Lorieau)

I took this picture on my second visit of Marrakesh as part of my project about the Moroccan Medina, in October 2011. Unlike Fez, roads run through its ramparts allowing traffic inside the Medina. I was walking on one of the main roads near the Mellah of Marrakech when I spotted the four electric/gaz boxes in the ramparts. I quite like the lines they made along with the red and white signs on the pavement. The association of texture and colour were quite interesting in terms of contrast. Then the Moroccan man traditionally dressed walked by bringing a true Moroccan feeling to the photograph. I was very lucky that no cars or motorbikes drove by when taking it.
