Last week I was in the Grand Bazaar. I took some pictures in there. These are some of them. If you wish to see more, you can visit my blog.
I always love to be there, has a magical ambience into the historical touches.

Hi dear Irma, I am glad you like them. These are traditional oil lamps and made of colourful glasses. Colourful glass works are all traditional art, and coming from the Ottoman times.

Thank you dear Irma,
with my love,

Yes, dear Rob, I love to visit your web, Morocco photographs are amazing, how much I loved them. And yes, these are all coming from the same art culture, I have in my own home too, but without light or candle... they are just hanging!

Thank you,
with my love,

Thanks nia for your explanation about the lamps, and for sharing so many interesting things from your country.
Your comments and your pictures make Shuttertalk so multicultural. I like this a lot... Smile

You are welcome dear Irma, we are all coming from a different places of the world and also from a different cultures... Shuttertalk connects us all. This is actually the richness for all of us. Photography talks and connects us; I always look on this way. I was writing poetry (maybe still my poetical spirit is alive but not writing as before) but my poetical spirit and maybe a little bit the spirit of journalist or adventurer lives with my camera Smile

Once again thank you so much dear Irma, you are always so nice and your encouragement, your supportive words and yes, your kindful advises, and helpful sharings are great. You have a very special place in my photographical life.

Blessing and Happiness,
with my love,
nia
