Fate is a strange phenomenon, this image was taken from the top floor of the Argane cafe/resturant where the terrorist bomb went off yesterday in Marrakech. We were there a week ago everything seemed fine, makes me think very deeply. A tribute to the people whom lost their lives whilst enjoying a meal ( we had coffee only ) at this location. May terrorism be defeated, it is the ugly side of societies everywhere in the world.

Layers of light and life going on, this is superb. Seeing this now the people look so vulnerable. Yesterday's news was terrible, I wonder how many of the people in this image were there.
I'm so relieved to see you uploading, I wasn't sure if you were still in Marrakech. We were thinking of you last night.

How sad that people are killed and maimed while out for a meal with family, what possible good can come from deads like that? A fine image Ron but a sad message with it.

Thought of you both when we heard the news. Hadn't realised you had actually been in the restaurant. Sad and worrying times we live in, so glad that you are both safe. A poignant image.

Very well composed image Ron and what is now very poignant particularly for you. Unfortunately terrorism has been around since the ancient Greeks and shows little sign of decreasing. If only the perpetrators could know and understand a fraction of the misery they create.

I too heard it on the news and commented to my husband about you being there. What a shame about the poor people who lost there lives. You were very fortunate to have not been one of them. This is a superb capture Ron...............Sandy

The innocent are far too often the victims Ron, I suppose that's the terrorists cowardly aim. Excellent image, sad events,

Excellent image and thought provoking commentary. In my university days in Belfast a group of us went on a country bus to a friend's house to find her absolutely frantic and in tears. The IRA levelled the bus station just a few minutes after we left killing several people, and of course she was convinced that we would have been there at the time. Chilling to think that i was probably within yards to the bomb and totally unaware of it. These things are sobering thoughts even nearly 40 years later.
