Those are the most famous blue wall and yellow window of Marrakech and the entire North Africa.
We arrive early morning on purpose to enjoy when it's still empty. As soon as the gate has opened, we are inside the famous Majorelle Garden. The in-city Paradise created by the extreme sense of elegance of the French painter Jaques Majorelle. It was the 1923 when Jacques bought four abandoned acres of land just out of Marrakech and, as painting on a white canvas, he transformed this dry piece of land in a sparkling explosion of all types of green and the famous blue Majorelle. Yves Saint Laurent, the French fashion designer, and Pierre Bergé discovered, fell in love and bought in the 1980, saving this "Paradise on Earth" from a real estate speculation and donating to all of us the chance to enjoy.
For photographers, every corner is a good frame and the blue wall, with its intense color, named Blue Majorelle, it's a wonderful location. But the garden gets crowded very soon. We are not alone anymore and instead of being nervous, better to take the advantage of the visitors as models. Because everyone wants to pose in front of the wall. Here I'm now, teaching to my clients to be patient, waiting for someone photogenic and "click". A open-air portrait lesson at the Majorelle.
