Took my macro lens out to play with some of my wife’s stash of foreign correspondence (from her time working with BBC World Service). All photos shot with my Nikon Df, 105mm macro lens, and natural light. Next up: Africa.
“Due to my mom’s love of films from the 40s and 50s, I grew up very knowledgeable about all things film noir and some of my favorite actors come from this era: Joseph Cotton, Gene Tierney, and, of course, Humphrey Bogart. Naturally, one cannot think of Bogey without thinking of Casablanca. Not surprisingly, the city of the film (which was mostly shot on a sound stage in Hollywood) has nothing to do with the real city. In reality, Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city with well over three million inhabitants. It should also be noted that there are about a dozen Rick’s Cafes for tourists to find and photograph.”
