Photographer's Note

I love to take pictures of contrasts, such as shadows and light. I wanted to take the picture of this door in the Mosque and was waiting for the couple to leave. As they decided to stay for a while, I had to take it with them in the front. But now, I'm glad they didn't move; I think they make the picture more interesting.

When I visited Morocco, I wasn't really that interested in visiting the Mosque of Hassan II, because it was a rather new structure (built about 10 years ago). I was travelling with a group and only two of us decided to enter the mosque. It's quite impressive, combining the classical details and modern technology. For example, it has a roof that can be opened in summer if it's too hot and it has a floor that can be heated if it's too cold. It can welcome as much as 25,000 people.
