Magic Windows

The top photo is from last summer's summer rental outside Essouira.
The whole house had weird colors but bags of charm.



The picture below is one of my favorite photos of our little house.
When we arrived all the windows were yellow glass with a design in it.
Plain glass is much prettier and multicolored more exciting.
So I went up to the glass cutters and had them cut me lots of panes of pure colored glass.
The bathroom walls were pink tadellakt (sort of polished plaster).
The reflctions change during the course of the day.

Hello Elizaeth, thanks for stopping by my blog. I have enjoyed yours with all these beautiful photographs. I have a friend who spends half of the year in Morocco. He enjoys his life there very much.

So very subtle, the colours in the first picture, so strong in the second one. Each beautiful. I seem to remember to have seen the second one in an older post. Loved it then also.
