(shopping) "Sheltering Sky"
A Nice point of view of this shopping Sheltering Sky from Marrakesh,
lot of peoples there, nice place and caught of view..
certainly that smelt good of the smoke of the market..
excellent tone of colors and light.
A good one. I was here in the Summer of 2011. Marrakech to me is one of the most exotic places on this planet. You capture the hustle of the market very well.
I would love to be in this place. So many to see and when you are with camera...it's like heaven. Hope they are kindly enough when visitor take pictures :D

Bom dia teresa
Jemaa el Fna at sundown is indeed an overwhelming place. Masses of people, noises, smells and flavors. you managed to capture the essence of it in a masterpiece of photography. I got the sensation from my visit there once again through your presentation.
have a nice weekend

Great shot full of activity and summing up exactly your thoughts on Marrakesh. It is one place I have always wanted to go and hope I will do some time in the future and I imagine you have captured the essence of the square here, with the light, colours, and activity of the people, as well as the smoke. Wonderful daily life shot full of atmosphere and a great addition to the theme.
The hustle and bustle of market day, so many people looking for a bargin. I love the way the smoke filters across the backdrop the way it does, it mixes and changes the view and perspectives. Amoungst all the mayhem of people going about their daily business, I see a chink of humour in one corner of this eastern scene.....a large blow-up telephone, it loooks out of place but then it does show the changing times we are in.
I would long to travel to so many eastern contries to experience the cultures, alas so much unrest in many places does tend to strike home the many problems that do exist.....perhaps one day, at least i'd like to think one day I will be able to.
Wonderous scene Teresa, perfect addition the the theme this week, the red flag grabs a lot of the attention, have a peaceful weekend.

A splendid ambient in this rather busy open air market place with the BG smoke nicely lit with backlighting. So many things of interest in this daily life shot.
Very neatly presented and a fine documentation photojournalistic shot.
My best regards,

Hi Therese, I love the picture and I love your note as well - you take the words out of my mouth and mind. - I was there a few times about 40 yrs ago when tourists were not that many around. It sure is one of my fondest memory beside my love Australia.
Thanks for sharing and certainly suits the contribution very fine.
kindest regards Monika

I like the of mass humanity. Shopping at it's best. I like the part of your image that shaows the people on the top of the building on the left. It really enhances the over all impact. nice
you capture the real life of the place with the essence, mood and light. taken from a good angle also.
with best wishes,

The scene you've presented is sereal, just like a scene from Arabian nights. People busy shopping in open market is looking interesting. A blow of smoke coming from the side is adding charm. Such a wonderful photograph, well done. Thanks for sharing.

I like the immense mood you have captured in this strong picture, Teresa!
The smoke erupting out adds great drama into the scene, whereas light and exposure are brilliant.
Good sharpness and nice clarity with amazing details.
Nice contribution to Friday's theme!
Have a nice weekend.

Now, this is what I call shopping! There must thousands shoppers! And we do tend to stereotype people or places and when I think of Morocco I only think of the places based on the movies I've seen but I'm sure it's not romantic for those people. Love the lighting and the effect of the smoke. Great pov and dof with nice details. Very well done, tfs.

Hello,this image of peaceful overcrowding is simply superb.The exposure from light to dark is very well done and gives the picture strong human interest.Fine atmosphere created by the light. Best wishes,Otto.

Your shot seems to capture the essence of Morocco very nicely with the crowds and the different architecture. Light is well handled as you appear to be shooting into the sun but you have captured the details well and avoided the glare of the sun.

A richly detailed image of this open shopping market with ideal overall light.Higher vantage point has also incorporated the buildings showing their importance to this scene, well seen and TFS.

En lisant ce que tu rapportes de P.Bowles, je croyais en fait que c'était toi qui avais écrit cela car cela te ressemble
Que de monde sur cette photo qui traduit intensément la fébrilité d'un "shopping" un peu spécial.Si tu venais ici pour la St Martin, tu verrais à peu près la même affluence, des vendeurs et des acheteurs partout, mais -c'est sûr- l'exotisme africain en moins avec cependant aussi des odeurs de mergez et de kebab...
Très moody et ta note est très riche et nous parle de toi
Profite bien du dimanche

A good contribution to the Friday's theme with the crowd at the Marrakech market. Your point of view is showing the activities at the market. A good management of the light which does not hurt the output of the colors. Have a nice day.

There is so much to see in this scene Teresa , a busy image ! Evidently everything goes in Marrakesh , lively place it surely is and i second your thoughts about it being a " concert of life " like first row seats attending a rock concert !
I like your pov here where the massive crowd litterally covers up almost every meter of possible ground , the smoke dramatizes the scene , thank God it comes from the food kiosks... i could go on and on describing and ..not exagerating the human chaos in that photograph yet the ultimate experience is to live through it : you did it !
Thank you my friend for this photo submitted to the shopping theme , bravo , a good one , ok show us some more of your trip .

I really like the light in the steam! That adds so much to the shot, breaking up all the people and the tiny details in the scene! It pulls your eyes right there to the light! I truly like the RED flag!

Bom dia Teresa,
Parece que todo mundo veio para o shopping. Você fez uma bela colheita desse mundo incomum que é o Marroco. A pesar disso é uma foto sua que bem reflete a sua visão do mundo e seu modo de capturá-lo.
A wonderful view of this well known place : the noisy atmosphere with the steam, some details like these on the building, the light on the left one and of course the red flag !
Wonderful shot. Excellent execution. The details superbly framed here. Interesting sharpness, lights and clarity you captured. Very well done.
