view from Marrakech V
Marrakesh is the most important of Morocco's four former imperial cities. The region was inhabited by Berber farmers from Neolithic times, but the actual city was founded in 1062 by Abu Bakr ibn Umar, chieftain and cousin of Almoravid king Yusuf ibn Tashfin. In the 12th century, the Almoravids built many madrasas (Koranic schools) and mosques in Marrakesh that bear Andalusian influences. The red walls of the city, built by Ali ibn Yusuf in 1122-1123, and various buildings constructed in red sandstone during this period, have given the city the nickname of the "Red City" or "Ochre City". Marrakesh grew rapidly and established itself as a cultural, religious, and trading centre for the Maghreb and sub-Saharan Africa

Bonjour, cher Costantino,
Il faut reconnaître que le dépaysement est total à travers cette composition. Le regard médusé des chameaux ou dromadaires est étonnant et criant de vérité.
Une excellente prise de vue.

nicely taken picture of the three camels resting and waiting fr some tourists to have a ride. I like their bright colored saddles which add cheerful tones to the whole scene as well as the fact that we can have a glimpse of some architecture of Marrakesh in the distance. Nice use of the palm tree to frame the picture in natural way.
Thanks for sharing

Composition of this pic is good. However contrast is too high which should be a little down.
I like the colours. Thanks for sharing.

A quiet moment for these animals, maybe also for the drivers.
You chosen a lovely place with the lanterns in background.
Nice cityscape but in a green area.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice week,

Ce ne sont pas les plus jolies bêtes au monde, mais elles sont vraiment très photogéniques. J'ai eu le plaisir d'en monter un dans le désert et c'était toute une expérience.J'aime beaucoup les couleurs de leurs selles.

The camels add both life and colours to this interesting street view. Many attractive details to be enjoyed here.

For me it is very strange to see great desert animals like this in the centre of a city, but that is the joy of this website where we learn all about other parts of the world I really like the one who has made eye contact with you lens, I can almost hear him wondering what you are doing :)

questi cammelli sembrano molto incuriositi dalla tua presenza, forse volevano un servizio fotografico personale.
Ottima condivisione e interessante nota.

Ah, this camels, it is not easy to ride a camel, especially going up and down, it is scary :) I like very much the colorful seat and the background of city landscape. Poor camels work so hard everywhere carrying things and tourist too.

Fine view of these camels with colorful saddles waiting for their riders, with a landscaped background, and a glimpse of a mosque tower.
Other worldly for me since in the American West the horse, mules and donkeys were the mode of transportation. Though the U.S. Army made several attempts to try camels in desert areas, but lack of experienced camel jocks helped the experiment fail.
Thanks for sharing,

Waiting for tourists who would need a ride, Costantino.
Lovely photo with two camels looking at you taken the picture.
Green trees and a tower just far behind, in good view over the small square in red/white.
Best regards & kalispera,
