Fish Stall - Fes el Bali - Fes - Morocco

Taking pictures of people in Morocco is difficult. If you ask permission everyone says no. Just taking a general street scene will end up with one or more rude gestures. I was in the medina in Fes trying to take some general scenes of the food market and this kid walked up to me and asked me to take his picture. He walked over to the fish stall, spoke a few words to the man there, smiled and posed while I took one image. Then he asked for money. I should have seen that coming from a mile away!
