Windows in Morocco - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

When your only connection to the world is a window, what would you do? 

In Morocco, Madersas are the best opportunities, for the non-Islamic,  to admire the Islamic architecture.  At t
hese institutions for the study of Islamic theology and religious law, students would stay in small dens, with only one window opening.  While the idea is to limit the amount of distraction from outside world, I did what made sense to me and got a great view.

You see, I had to look out my window to look into the one across from me.  Had I looked down instead of looking out, as this gentleman did, I would have missed such view and the nice lady.

Windows are often referred to as a metaphor for opportunities.  So in light of  windows, what would you do?

Tianzifang (田子坊), Shanghai, Where Fusion Happens - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

My photography evolves over time.  Sometimes it's the mood; sometimes it's the composition; it could be the interest of subjects and it could be the color tones (like how I recently started processing some images into black & white)...

That's why it's interesting to see my heart skip a beat when I saw this image that I made 3 years ago in Tianzifang (田子坊),  Shanghai and never had a chance to post.  I guess some things never change.  It's the longing for the reminiscent of the past, the things that show evidence of age, the things that we "modern" people demolish and so-ever-clumsily try to reconstruct with no success ...

Yes, heart is a tricky place to reach, let alone understand completely.  And yet, I choose to listen to my heart.
