Azrou is a small Berber city in the Middle Atlas Mountains on the N13 road south of Fez, just south of Ifrane.

In general, the rule for street shooting was that the urban centers were tough as people were extremely camera conscious and wary of the tourists and their happy snaps. The more off the beaten path you travel, the more open people can be. This woman and her child were beautiful but I was actually in this alley trying to shoot the woman this mother was talking to. She did not let me.
