Many have asked about the Header image above, which I named 'Eerie Genny'. It was originally shot with film [taken on the shore of the Genesee River near the Univ. of Rochester]. During the darkroom development, I flashed a light above the tray. The process, known as 'solarization', produces eerie, ghostlike effects; some have mistaken this image as an infra-red photo. Some 35+ years later, I scanned and digitized the print, and did a little modern day editing, and, voila.

Morocco Odyssey 20: The Sahara Desert (iii)

Sorry for the long interruption in my narrative. From the date palm tree farm, we traveled to the village of Khamlia where we treated to a brief performance of ritual Gnawa music. The group, Pigeons du Sable [who are the descendants of former slaves] that travels the world to perform. One of the striking aspects of their music is the use of metal castanets [pictured on the left below the two drums].
Following the show, we strolled about the village. By accident, we encountered a group of school children returning to their schoolhouse.
It was quite an eventful day and we headed back to camp for dinner. Since the sun goes down quite late in the Sahara, I decided to take a stroll in the dunes. Here are a few shots.
