Magic Windows, Marrakesh and Elsewhere


All photos taken Feb and March 2013

Windows, like doors always hold a hint of mystery...


a moment of transition between inner and outer.
This window is in the Artisans' Ensemble in Marrakesh


as is this one. How Moroccans love colored glass as I did when we lived there.


Decorated window and door frames abound.


Here at Sherazade, the little old hotel we love in the medina right near Djemma ElFna, the windows have safety grilles. How many patterns can you see?


More windows at Sherazade --here facing the courtyard.


As above.


A nice austere window at the Bahia Palace.


Last two windows in hotels in Tiznet


and Essouira.

oh isn't it just gorgeous all these colours and designs. Nearly next door to my work we've got an Morroccan restaurant which has nice lamps and other elements from the country and of course the delicious food. He also takes people on a cooking course in Marocco. So you went back there or are you still in Marocco. You must have had a great time
