blue, red and life (91)
A berbere in Atlas told me about blue berbere, the color that they use to make their berbere houses more beautiful. There are another nuance of blue named " blue Majorelle" the one that Jacques Majorelle has chosen to his " Vila" at Marrakesh and where Yves Saint Laurent has lived. Jacques who was a painter thought that blue increased the beauty of green at Majorelle garden. Any way is the red that gives the warm tones of Marrakesh. Walls of Medina, walls of Nouvelle ville make the diference of the city.It is more a" salmon-red" that "loves" to be iluminated by golden sun at the end of the day.
I like this street almost empty but where colors give life to the photo.
I must say that Tahari ( tsilla), linus ( Sunil). Ballou, and others have great photos from Morroco. All of them show a Land full of personnality...I must return there to live the desert: try to understand the silence of the night and the gold of the day.

Just to show how are bdly I have focus in Africa
Altered Image #1
Surely not perfect, but the aim was to bring the "daily life mood" closer to the viewer, rather than focussing on the architecture.
Feel free to (dis)agree ;o)
