This picture perfectly describes a part of the daily life of Fes el Bali.
Although the use of donkeys is the only means of transport useful within the medina, is not always easy to move through the narrow streets.
Extraordinary photo.
Great blog, congratulations

Toutes mes excuses pour ne pas écrire en anglais.
Pendant de nombreux mois je suis votre blog. C'est un plaisir de lire tous les jours sur Fès, une ville que j'aime profondément et que chaque fois que je peux je je vais.
Aujourd'hui, j'ai décidé de poster une photo par hasard. Il ya quelques mois en vacances à Barcelone, j'ai assisté à l'Alliance Française à une exposition de ce photographe. Les photos étaint un hommage à Fès. Je l'ai aimé.
Cette image reflète très bien un aspect de la vie de la médina
Je vous remercie de insérer le commentaire.

I love this photo. I've been three times in Fez and was able to capture some good scenes with donkeys but this I like, having captured the instant when the load of donkey prevented from moving down the alley and a child tries to pass between them.
Great photo.
Congratulations for the great blog.
Thanks.

A beautiful photo from Joaquim. As everybody knows, to take a good photograph you need to know the technique to take photographs, but the sense of the art and the chance to catch the moment are, perhaps, more important.

Wonderful picture of Joaquim Caudevilla. In Joaquim’s picture I can see the authenticity of everyday life of ancient cultures tending to disappear due to the “Occidentalization” of the world. This kind of images can still be found in places like Fez, so near from Spain but yet so unknown. Fantastic photo.

Actually, I don't like this one much. It is a bit of a cliché and the photoshopping is a bit intense. I prefer subtle. - Tom
