Postcards from Morocco

We never expected Morocco to show us so much contrasting beauty and to give us so many incredible memories. (And we were only there 10 days!)

Here are some of our favorite pictures.

  6. What a clever idea to make YOUR photos look like real postcards. At first, I momentarily thought they WERE postcards (that you’d bought and scanned.) Silly me – you truly have a great “eye”!

  7. What a neat place. I’ve already mentioned how much I like the postcard idea. Morocco is on our list of possibles for this year. Probably only a week, but it looks amazing.

  9. Wow guys, I think these photos are some of your best yet! You’re definitely selling me on Morocco – a little beach time in Essaouira and then a camel ride through the desert sounds perfect.

  10. Wow these photos are incredible! This is the first time I’ve been to your website and I think I’m going to check out more of your ‘postcard’ pictures.

    Hard to pick a favourite as they’re all good, but I love the effects on the ‘Djemaa-El-Fna’ postcard.

  22. Love these! And what a great idea putting them into post cards. We haven’t been to Morocco yet, but your photos are moving it higher on our list. For some reason, we keep putting it on the backburner. Maybe we should think again.

  23. Amazing photographs! You are able to capture such beautiful moments with your postcard series. Now, I want to go to Morocco even more!

  24. Superb works and a great eye for photography…you should consider going commercial with yours pics…well done Pete

  25. Loooooove the pictures!

    I was wondering: what do you think of Morocco when it comes to ‘women friendlyness’?
    I’ve heard from several girls that, especially in the cities, actually, they didn’t really feel at ease and had been called not so pleasant things walking around on the streets there.

    It’s something that’s holding me back from visiting what looks like a beautiful country.

    • In all honesty Sofie, I wouldn’t travel there on my own. There are times that I felt quite uncomfortable, even when I was on Pete’s arm. The men were not shy to make some pretty bold comments, and stare relentlessly. I don’t know that you would ever be in any real danger, but if that makes you uncomfortable, then I would be wary of trying to make the trip alone.

  26. I’m trying to help a poor Moroccan woman out by doing research on how to market her photos of Morocco for postcards and calendars and ran across your page from a search engine link. Your pictures are wonderful and I thought they were pictures of actual postcards that you posted!. You might want to check out or a similar site where customers can order your photos to be made into mugs, postcards, posters etc.
