Shadow Shot Sunday - Ouiskra

 a couple of years ago
the people of Ouiskra in the Atlas Mountains
celebrated their new school house..
..and the school bags and supplies donated for the 5 year olds so that they may go to school
and the village getting connected to mains electricity
it was a day for clapping and dancing...and drumming

Linking up with Tracy over at Hey Harriet.

Lovely shot and a great reminder for us to appreciate the electricity and school and supplies that we take for granted.

I love colorful celebrations, especially if they involve thanksgiving!

IF SHADOWS

If shadows could jump,
How high would they go?
As high as the moon?
Does anyone know?

If shadows could weep,
How long would they cry?
As long as it takes
To climb to the sky?

If shadows could laugh
And tell funny jokes
Would you take them home
And say, “Get this, folks!”?

If shadows could wed,
Would they prefer you
Or somebody else
To promise, “I do”?

I just found your blog a few days ago and fell in love with your photos straight away. What a wonderfully rich culture you live in. The tiles photos are great - it is thrilling when our landscape inspires us don't you think?

honestly Annabella I don't know how I'm missing all of these lovely posts. drats, but better late than never I guess.
I love this photo for many reasons, but foremost because of the celebration of something that we here in the States take so for granted. sometimes I think we need to lose some of what we have in order to really see how much we do indeed have. this is rich. yes.
