|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|The textures and subtle colour palette of the Bizerte Medina unfolded with every turn though the labyrinthine alleys. It's a surprisingly mellow environment. Fragrant smells of good food cooking in family kitchens hidden from view by ancient walls, make me wish we'll find something as appetizing to eat for supper. Real people live here, young, old, not really rich or poor, returning home from work and school. Some heed the call to prayer, but there is certainly no sign of religious zealotry here.|

Beautiful arches and building, pitty there is the graffiti that in my opinion, is disrepectful to this old city. Wish people appreciated more the heritage they have, we mediterraneans are so lucky...so rich in heritage, but we must protect and preserve them, if not....how would our successors know what our fathers have been able to do!
I made you a workshop of how I wish the medina was. Its not to correct yours, but to give you my vision....hope you like it!

Wonderful textures that are indicative of an old area that has seen many people come and go. The little girl make for an interesting focal point and provides life to the scene.
Belle photo d'un endroit d'une grande pauvreté. Le cadrage est très réussi.
