In our wander through the medina, I came across this alley and stopped to take a photo. But there was a gentleman walking through and blocking the view. I waited for him to vacate the alley. As soon as he was gone, I pressed the shutter. By the time the camera responded (the joys of a point-and-shoot), this lady had entered the alley. My wife had already walked on, so I could not afford to wait for another shot. In retrospect, I am glad she entered the photo.
Medinede Dar Sokak
Medine içinde dolaşırken, ben bu dar sokağa rastladım ve fotoğraf çekmek için durdum. Ama yürüyen ve görünümü engelleyen bir beyefendi vardı. Onun sokağı boşaltmasını bekledim. O gider gitmez ben deklanşöre bastım. Fotoğraf makinesi tepki gösterene kadar (göster-ve-çeklerin marifetleri), bu bayan sokağa girmişti. Eşim de zaten yürümeye devam etmişti, bu yüzden başka bir çekim için beklemeyi göze alamadım. Ama şimdi baktığımda, onun fotoğrafa girdiğine memnunum.

You had intention to show modern building "rises" from within the ancient neighbourhood, but you got a couple of local ladies as a bonus.
Good depthnand clarity through.
Have a nicesunday,

I'm glad the lady walked into the scene, she's placed herself superbly at the end of the long alley where she is framed by the door and has a dark backdrop that makes her face stand out. In my opinion, the human presence gives meaning to the geometry and textures and makes the perspective more purposeful and attractive. There's excellent definition, the warm tones make this view more intriguing. I like very much your precise composition and framing. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,

A more traditional side of Casablanca than your yesterdays upload. I think you where lucky that the lady walked in the composition, she rounds it up nicely.
The glimpse of the modern city behind the alley contrasts nicely with the old alley.
have a great week

You're capturing well this daily life by a good symmetry, a good perspective and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the back alley of medina with the combination of tasteful colorful wall and stone pavement. I know the smell of a life in here. The two women who is sitting and standing on this alley, wearing tradional scarf draw out a good impact in this image.

bello scatto, la presenza della donna è perfetta in questa composizione, con il suo socco colorato, si distingue dalla porta scura.
Belli anche i colori dei muri, soprattutto quello dello sfondo che colpisce immediatamente l'attenzione dell'osservatore.

This narrow alley is an ideal place to really capture the atmosphere, warmness and vibrant colors with its unique charm. The light is perfect and luminous, impressive compo with the standout red wall and the woman anchor nicely. It's a marvelous intimate sight neatly taken. Congrats
