Early morning in Marrakesh, the city is waking up to a hot day. While the tour busses start to arrive at the overcrowded Bahia Palace, the locals are having a cup of mint tea to start the day in this small café just of Place des Ferblantiers in the less crowded southern part of the Medina.

I like this picture of the street corner very much. It is interesting to see daily life in this place before the tourists arrive. Gorgeous light and colours.
Kind Regards, Ann

Salut cher Daniel
The fresh crisp colours and beautiful ancient architecture are so compelling. I would love to see this country and your photo only confirms it. The ceramics on the left are superbly rendered, and you have managed the light exquisitely. Thanks for sharing and I wish you and your family a Happy Easter.

A super shot Daniel. There is so much to enjoy here; the local life, the wonderfully figured walls of the mosque and yet the shot is well balanced and uncluttered. By the looks of things this is a man's world!
Have a super Easter weekend

A nice view of the quiet life in the morning, while it's still not too hot. There is a pleasant blend of traditional architecture and more contemporary. The colour and light is fine and even in the darkest corner all details are well captured.

A wonderfully exotic daily life scene, with a great angle to take in both the architecture and mosaic of the building and the locals having a nice cup of tea. The shadows and light give hint that this is very early and that the world is only beginning to wake. The red canopy adds a really excellent splash of color to compliment the blue of the mosaic.
Thanks as always and Happy Easter!

I have taken a similar picture in Paris, a small cafe next to a big door...but your photo holds much more interest and appeal. Perfect timing to capture the gentleman on the right pouring his tea, and the interaction between the small group of men under the canopy. The young boy in the open doorway also has an impact upon the detailing of this scene. Not only these features, but the warm morning light adds to the atmosphere and color. A wonderful daily life moment, seemingly innocuous, but well done to convey the mornings activity in this little corner of town. Enjoy the weekend. All the best.

Thanks for sharing this lovely shot of Marrakesh. I love the tiled entranceway and the characteristic ochre coloured walls. You have certainly captured an everyday moment with the gentleman in the foreground pouring that specialty mint tea.
I spent a few mornings out nice and early in Marrakech- I found the more empty streets without the tourist throng to be more pleasing and I also found it much easier to manage the light which later In the day became very harsh and directional within those steeply walled alleys.

sehr schön, sehr typisch, es ist Dir gelungen, eine Art Essenz der Stadt zu zeigen: Hufeisenbogen, Celije-Fliesen und Minztee.

Excellent patterns around the gate complemented by a slice of everyday life in the city. Well seen and excellently rendered.
