Shadow Shot Sunday - Under the Shade


I took this photo at a local cafe in Marrakech. I don`t like leaving a cafe and feeling ripped off. I had that feeling leaving this one. I`ll vote with my feet. I won`t be going back again. However, the shade provided some pretty shadows and I feel better for that. At least they couldn`t charge for the shadows.

For more shots of a shadowy nature head on over to Tracy`s.

Oh, that's not good to feel ripped off, sorry you didn't enjoy it. On the other hand you did get a picture out of it. Lol

it's a huge disappointment to go out for a meal and then leave feeling dissatisfied. I don't like that one bit and I do the same - vote with my feet. plus I share the experience with friends if it's that bad. but I rarely have the nerve to be honest when asked at the time how the food is! better to be kind than right my friend always said. glad you at least got the shadows, which lend a subtle texture to your great perspective here. happy SSS to you Annabella.

You got them back. Their cafe name is not visible in the photo so no free advertising.

Annabella I'm sorry you had a bad experience with this cafe .. we are hesitant to complain directly ourselves too .. so voting with our feet is what we do as well !
The shadows are very pretty though so at least you had that much ;-)

You did get a nice shot though!
Love looking at the sky and that palm tree through the planks of wood.

I'm glad you got some free shadows!

IF I HAD A SHADOW

If I had a shadow as big as the sky,
I never would fear, and I’ll tell you why:

My shadow would save me from dragons and things
That fly in the night with terrible wings;

My shadow would keep me away from the beast
That sniffs in the west and sniffs in the east

Hungry for children who play all alone,
Hoping to feast upon blood, upon bone;

My shadow would be my protector and knight
To keep fear at bay, to banish all fright.

I’m so glad my shadow is always nearby,
Though it’s not nearly as big as the sky!

Anika said...

Mousy Brown said...

Joan said...

That does stink!
I had never heard that expression before. Learned something new. :)

You looked for and found a silver lining, and that's a good thing. So is your shadow shot. What a unique point of view, seeing the palm and sky through those (wood?) ceiling slats. Unlike you and Ms Becky, though, I tend to let the establishment know what I think of their poor product/service... and it can be done without offense.
