Light at Susie's House

By Elizabethwix

One of the magical things about Morocco is how light......
Light at Susie's House
is tossed from a lamp casting shadows ......
Light at Susie's House
 seeps in though internal windows.....
Light at Susie's House
 falls slap onto oranges in the courtyard
Light at Susie's House
  and bathes the pale roses by the pool.
Light at Susie's House
Blue and red glass in the fanlight brighten a quietly colored room.
Light at Susie's House
So  very many cushions in the salon!
Light at Susie's House
 and how sharp the shadows of the olive tree in morning light. 
Light at Susie's House
In the evening the candles flicker on a sheepskin rug in the courtyard.
All the photos in this post were taken in February at Riad Villa el Arsa, my friend Susie Scott's very old guest house in the medina where we stayed part of the time we were in Marrakesh.
