I was very pleased to decide a daily trip to Essaouira, which is some 120 kms from Marrakech. The road seems long and unless one starts very early he may arrive there around midday, not exactly what photographers are after. So I tried to get going very early and get some decent light and spend the midday hours in restaurant or cafes. Here I found an interesting and very colorful, but I also had the surprise to find these chatting men who were so busy
talking that they didn't even notice me.

une belle scène de bazard avec ces palabres entre vieux et ce décors de caverne d'Ali Baba.
La lumière est splendide.

Hi Izzet, lovely picture. The men with their gestures are really nice. You positioned them rigt into 1/3 from all sides. Nice composition. Essaouira is a really lovely city. Thanks for sharing. Cheers, Michael

Merhaba. Tente altında sohbet eden üç fesli adam dikkat çekiyor ve akabinde ardışık kemerler çarşıya doğru gözleri çekiyor, ne güzel, rengarenk ve kıvrak bir kompozisyon. Elinize sağlık, selam ve sevgiler

Great image, because it combines 2 different things: The very colourful market; and the 3 men arguing or discussing. When you put them both together it gives a great idea of the life and appearance of this place.
I'm just noticing your portfolio for the first time, and it's very impressive. I'm didn't get a chance to see much of it yet, but I think I'm going to enjoy it a lot!

Merhaba İzzet Bey,
Markette satılanların renk zenginliğinin yansıması, yapının eski dokusu ve kemerleri, hatta tente ile açık renk kıyafetli adamın elbisesinin uyumu ile nefis bir kompozisyon....
Tebrikler ve teşekkürler...

One of the most enduring images I have of Morocco is of the souks/market at Essaouira...the colours, sounds, smells, activioty and architecture....so very Moroccan. You have captured it all in your image. A big thanks.

Markets fulls of life and people.
And also plenty of details.

Wonderful and colorful picture, Izzet. There is nothing modern in this arket, it looks ancient and authentic. There is a very nostalgi feeling feeling in it, and I like it very much.

Nice composition showing the daily life of a Moroccan market. I love the many details you captured and the intensity of the colors. The conversation of the men in the front adds life to the picture. Have a nice weekend, Yvonne

C'est tout à fait l'idée qu'on se fait du Maroc avec ce marché coloré, les hommes en vêtements traditionnel et les bâtiments un peu délabrés à l'arrière plan. La lumière est certes forte, mais pas trop, et toutes ces couleurs sont fabuleuses. J'aime beaucoup cette photo.
Je te souhaite un bon dimanche.

Really colourful picture. Congratulations,
The name Essaouira reminds me of a very old TV serial :)
