This is a perspective of a Berber village, situated not far from Sousse, in Tunisia.
The Berbers are in North Africa since around 4000 BC, much time before the Arabs arrive here. Most part of them are nomads and they have adopted the Islamism as their own faith but they keep their own identity and language. If you don't mind travelling by car, you can find several villages inhabited by them in Tunisia. Here is one: Takrouna, that is an incredible place: a part of the village is situated on the top of a hill and besides the architecture that is still quite traditional, and the contact with the people, the landscape is magnificent.

Muiot gira a tua foto com cores suaves e bonitas. No entanto, eu teria feito um pouco diferente. Acho que teria dado mais importância à janela que me parece ser muito interessante. Fazendo isso, teria evitado o terraço do primeiro plano e a sombra do lado direito.

A very, very interesting place. In 2004 I visited Tunisia and stayed in Souse but as I stumbled and fell upon my camera in Rue de France at the Medina, I was not very eager to travel any more without a camera. And now, thanks to you, I understand how much I've missed...
Excellent paysage with that house following that ancient architecture...

Hi Ana! Very interesting perspective, good contrast and sharpness. I would perhaps crop the shadow on the right, it's a bit distracting.

what an incredibly blue sky I like the way the blue of the window matches the sky, this is such an interesting place. the picture is full of contrasts and arresting. Thanks for all the information in the note.
