In 1980, King Hassan II noted the following during his birthday celebration.
“I wish Casablanca to be endowed with a large, fine building of which it can be proud until the end of time… I want to build this mosque on the water, because God’s throne is on the water. Therefore, the faithful who go there to pray, to praise the creator on firm soil, can contemplate God’s sky and ocean”
I shot these with a Tokina 12-24 Wide Angle lens.
I was in Morocco this summer, not Casalanca though. Great shots! I’d also recommend Essaouira if you’re still in Morocco 🙂 http://www.blipfoto.com/entry/2189952
Awesome photos! You’re a true artist!
Thanks John, appreciated.
Beautiful and amazing colours.
I am captivated by how each entry on your blog is a lovely collection of both location and everyday life. Each photo sighs with warmth and life.
Wonderful photos throughout your blog, Kurt. Here though, Rick Blaine would be so surprised (and enchanted) at the color.
Wow, great photos, capturing an essence of the country and its people.
Stunning pictures, beautiful composition!
Stunning images, somewhere I’ve always wanted to visit, one day maybe.
