CBBH Photo Challenge: Multi-Coloured

Marianne at http://eastofmalaga.net/ has chosen Multi-colored this month. Her own vibrant photos take on to Australia, Malaysia, Vietnam and New Zealand, check them out. Mine are all taken in Marrakech, one of my favourite places, with colour around every corner.

This challenge is a blog hop, to showcase two different blogs that you enjoy each time.
My first is Marina’s art blog http://marinakanavaki.com/ , her tagline is ‘Art Towards a Happy Day’, so very warm and generous. I love the way she uses her art not only as beautiful paintings but transferred to everyday items, at prices that make it accessible to all. Her work ‘As above so below’ is my favourite – so far.
Next, a relatively unknown blog http://2far2shout.wordpress.com/ , Tony has a light touch and describes himself as a slow traveler. He spent part of this winter in Australia and I loved his post about Kiama, God’s waiting room as he says! This time last year he was in India, returning to the places of his childhood. I have a copy of Hero on a Honda, his travel book about that trip.
I hope you visit and enjoy these two blogs!

  1. Ah, Gilly, I am honored!!!!
    Thank you so very much for this and thank you for your very flattering words! πŸ™‚
    I was very happy visiting Marianne’s and Tony’s blogs!
    πŸ™‚
    Happy Sunday, my dear and a bright beginning of a new week!

    1. I’ve stayed in two riads and both had pools, I think they probably all do. It adds to the lovely cool, fresh feeling in their inner courtyards. Have you never been to one? If not google Riad Amiris, it’s just delightful πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Gilly – welcome back, you’ve been missed!

    There are such wonderful colours, sights and scents in Morocco, aren’t there? And, you have captured the essence of Marrakech beautifully in your photos, Gilly – well done!

    Funnily enough, I discovered Marina’s blog through another link on this Challenge. What a wonderful artist she is. It was interesting reading Tony’s ‘Kiama” post, as we travelled there from Sydney for the annual Jazz festival. Happy days πŸ™‚

    Great entry for this month’s CBBH Challenge!

  3. Your wonderful, vivid images make me yearn to return to Morrocco Gilly!
    Marina is one of my favourite artists on here, but thanks for introducing Tony. Just took a peek into his book at Amazon, and I was hooked πŸ™‚

  4. these are fabulous!! and a couple of them remind me of the architecture in Spain. What is the square, tiled “thing” (labeling it that since I’m not sure what it is) that looks to be within someone’s house? Intriguing! Thanks for sharing, beautiful colors!!

  5. I have been fascinated with Marrakech since a read a novel back in the 70s. These photos bring back the sounds, crowds and colours from that book although I cannot recall it’s title. These are wonderful pictures. I took a peek at the other two links and am amazed at the art. Thank you for sharing, Gilly.

  6. Marrakech looks like a place I would be overjoyed to visit. The colors would have me floating with elation. My suitcase would be filled with fabrics. Fabulous pix”s for Marianne’s challenge. I, too, have missed visiting with her. I must tootle my way there again. Thanks for the reminder. I’ve enjoyed Marina’s artwork for sometime. She is a gentle artist. A good choice for showcasing as one of your two blog followings. I will go and visit with Tony right now.
    Blessings,
    Issy xoxo
