  • Muslims pray the Maghrib prayer right after sunset. This picture reminds me of the time before sunset, that golden hour of exploration and memory-making. Of dim reflections in foggy glass, of the savory smells in the Moroccan streets while we wait for a taxi, of the cool marble steps on a hot African evening. Al-Maghrib is full of color, a beauty not taken for granted. Even while you are waiting.
