Mohammedia (Casablanca), Morocco, 24.05.2009

The last week, not much happened. Neither at work, nor in my spare time. On monday I welcomed my new roommate and colleague, who turned out to be great comrade. The following pictures where all shot this weekend and yesterday we encountered a wedding ceremony in the park and when I started to shoot some pictures of this interesting Moroccan tradition, several people stopped me abruptly. But a first argument turned into an interesting short chat about cultures and the islamic idea of the picture. I knew, that in several islamic countries, pictures of people are forbidden, but since Morocco presented itself as a quite liberal western country to me, I saw no issue there. But anyway, I am a little disappointed, that I can not show the nice and also interesting wedding pictures to my web site. All other people on my page agreed to be shown.
