Within the walls of its medina, Fes el Bali (old Fes) lies the worlds largest intact medieval city. There are more than 9500 narrow streets and alleyways which wind endlessly up and down.
With this view over the city I was surprised to see so many satelite dishes everywhere.

I remember when you were taking that photo, I was behind you holding your ice cream and... wait a minute, I've never been to Morocco... :-P)
I don't think I would have recognize your signature on this one, but I do like it a lot. A cubist painting, an incredible 3D puzzle... I like to see different earth tones under soft light and no harsh contrasts.
If I would have been with you, I would have been nervous you were too close to the edge of the rooftop where you were standing... :-P)
Have a nice day satellite girl!

I like such busy images, overloaded with details, not only dishes but also windows, drying clothes etc, it's good that you have framed it without sky
Have a nice day JY

a pic with a nice cut, these buildings seem to be made of carton. Good, good framing.
Have a nice day!

Great shot. Because of the colours and pov, the dishes don't stand out at first, that's where your title comes in! Impressive scene, great crop.
Geniet van het weekend.

Mooi beeld van de oude stad met zijn rode huizen en het woud van satellietschotels op de daken.

I've been to a similar place in Tunisia.
Reminds me exactly of the Medina in Tunis.
We would all love to see any photos of the narrow streets and alleyways if you have them.
This paticular photo is very busy, but also very educational for anyone who hasn't seen these types of areas before. We can learn alot just by looking, and that is exactly what TE is all about
Very well done
have a great weekend

What a perspective with so
much information. Here I see a jungle
of dishes, aerials, numerous windows,
carpets and what not. Lovely
POV and colours.
Have a nice photo shoot weekend.

Well framed with only these houses, good result for a shot, interesting repetition with all these cubic houses and also with windows.

With national TV channels being little attractive, and cable probably too expansive for many, in most developping countries dish antennae business is flourishing... at the expanse of architectural integrity! Not too bad here as Ku band dishes are small...!
I like the natural earth and brick color tones.
