Magical!

Fahim,

You could write a new Arabian Nights that would be spellbinding. Why not?

Just maybe shift first portrait picture up and towards us a tad or push the next one down instead.

Asher

Hi, Fahim,

This is an extraordinary metaphor, well executed. I just love it.

No, you don't need to make it look as if the "narrator"'s image is actually repeated on successive pages.

Best regards,

Doug

Your photos make one want to learn more about the places you photograph. I probably have that many questions now inspired by your images.

Helene, thank you for the encouraging words.

These are from Morocco. You shall feel right at home there. As have numerous other French citizens who

have chosen to make Morocco their home.

The country is very safe, the people are extremely generous and hospitable, living is cheap, very near

to France and everyone speaks French fluently!!

Thank you and best wishes.

As I told Asher. travelers we are. If we are lucky we can witness the magic..


and if we are even luckier, we can capture it...


No magicians are we; just get lucky once in a while.

Fahim,

I love this shot, it belongs to the "great street photography" category, I'd say.

Regards,

Ruben

Time to wrap up this story. But not before acknowledging the storyteller, whose work has been

posted here of this trip more than mine. Reluctantly she agreed...
