A pair of eyes meet mine. The kind of eyes I think I have: curious and full of questions. But there is no way that mine, with their jade and cynicism, could even be mistaken in the dark. Morocco has been the ultimate test of trust in humanity. People are constantly coming up to me to talk. It's difficult to figure out who is genuinely trying to connect with me and who just wants to rip me off. I've never been somewhere quite like this. It's an adventure.
10. Stevin Tuchiwsky, Abraham Lake, Alberta.
11. Scott Sporleder, Lucban, Batangas, Philippines.
For my final portrait shot of the week, I'm not really going with a straight portrait, but more of an overall vibe… This is the Pahiyas Festival in Lucban, Philippines. This annual religious festival celebrates the patron saint of Farming and in order to honor him, local farmers decorate their houses with fruits and vegetables harvested from the area. It's a bright, wild and raucous party…and since it's Friday and the Filipinos know how to smile, I figure it's a great way to close out the week. #travelstoke
