Colours of the Souk

By ColleenA
Good morning....
Thank you for all your votes and great comments...glad you liked my fezGrinGrin...a special thank you to Maureen (HarrietH) for her UA...much appreciated
Todays images are all from the Souks in Marrakesh....Souk Semmarine sells everything from brightly coloured bejewelled sandals and slippers to jewellery and kaftans...Souk Ableuh contains stalls with chillies, capers pickles and olives...
The Souks are a honeycomb of intricately connected alleyways and has a dizzying number of stalls.
They also have stunning carpets...we spent hours in a showroom and nearly singed the CC when we bought two to send home.
Have a great day...

As I'm fasting for my hospital examination tomorrow, everything I'm seeing here on EPZ seems to feature food! I've starving already, but won't be able to eat for over 24 hours Sad
A very fine and colourful collection of images here Colleen, love 'em all (both of food and non-food items!), it certainly is a photographer's paradise. Brings back memories...more, please! SmileSmile

Souk Ableuh is definitely the souk for me then Grin LOVE how everything is arranged and piled up...and your shots of this place are top notch, Colleen.

V1 is my favourite shot here, then V11 Smile

Beautiful set, Colleen; somewhat reminiscent of the streets old city of Jerusalem.
Souk is Semitic lamgugaes word (shook in Hebrew), meaning market !
