There are two "blue cities" in the World.
One is Jodhapur in India and the other one is Chefchaouen in Morocco.
Founded on high, misty Rif Mountains, this small blue town of 35.000 people is a Moroccan Mediterranean heaven with fresh pine flavoured air and winding steep alleys and dark narrow passages.
Also a heaven for people who like the shades of blue starting from baby blue and sky blue to indio, velvet and purple.

J'aime l'encadrement qu'offre les deux murs sur les côtés, il pousse le regard vers le vas et la lumière de cette petite rue de la ville bleue. J'aime bien l'effet de profondeur.

I like the perspective and at the same natural frame of the picture. Of course, colours play here a very important role. I also love blue, purple, velvet and indigo colours, so by posting this picture You encouraged me to visit the country and the city :).
with best regards

I didn't know there were only 2 Blue cities (Jodhpur & not Jodhapur as you write in your note)...surprised theer's no Greek towns which can be a claimant of the name as well
This picture has a difficult exposure contrast but you handled well. The 'Blue' is quite dominant here. I believe by the caption (innovative one) you mean the shape which transpires of the 'opening'

Another very attractive picture!
Highlights here are the vertical format, management of light, chosen pov and composition!
TFS - congrats,

typical moroccan colours.... to be honest - the street looks a bit dead for this image but it is just a minor thing, i think... what compensate for it is the curves which nicely and a bit vividly "enliven" the image....

awesome my friend....awesome!!
I've heard of this blue city in Morocco, but the one in India i've heard more of.
So what was it like? hard to get to? easy to get to?
did you spend a night or two here or were you just passing by?
and howo did the local people treat you? did they mind you taking photographs?
brilliant shot here, wish I was there too!
love the textures and the way the colors mix, and the tunnel vision POV is smart.
very cool indeed!!!

bir önceki karedeki kiremit rengi ve buradaki çivit mavisi oraların klasik rengi sanırım....insana yeni bir yer görmek kadar başka ne heyecan verebilir ki ?

Evet, renkler güzel, ışık yeterli ama un güzeli, bakış açısı. Sanki birileri, Böyle buyurun karşı binaya diye yol gösteriyor.
