Great angle to shoot from. Subtle details in the construction all add up to an outstanding facade.

I would stand on my head for you. Ciel.

Tu veux nous faire attraper un torticoli ?

Malyss said...

Tu devais être ans une position cocasse quand tu as pris cette photo..:)
mais le resultat est joli, et donne une sensation de grandeur et d'élan.

Dina said...

Nice angle!

Thérèse said...

Tu as oublié de lui faire faire un virement à droite à ta photo! :-)

Weren't you dizzy after this shot?
Amazing idea, I love it!

Super angle! Hope you didn't hurt your neck taking this photo ;D

Birdman said...

What an angle on this one!

brattcat said...

You have history leaning over us in this one. This would have been an imposing piece of architecture at any angle but this really enhances the effect.

Halcyon said...

I like the angle on this one. Very cool!

Nice perspective. The sky looks almost turquoise.

'Tis a very nice building, but are all the buildings in that neighborhood leaning over so far? :-)

I'll see you later. I've got to go work out the crick in my neck.

Just kidding!

Hope you're having a good weekend!

Oh, re your question on Colorado: That Elk was in a park behind a fence and Lois was a fair distance away...they're quite tame but very big and always dangerous to a certain extent.

I"m standing on my head with Jack! HA
Bon weekend dear Ciel!

It somewhat reminds me of place des Vosges...

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

Hi Ciel...re your comment on Stone Creek about the "sand pit of the golf" ... well, you'll be interested to know that just about everytime I hit my ball in that sand pit, I cry out, "Son of a beach!" :-)

@ Jack: oh, no, please don't, I'd hate to be the cause of a blood rush! :-)

Ooo, I like the horizontal turned vertical treatment of this image, and the soft cool and warm colors. Wonderful! Welcome back from the great NW!

Loree said...

I love it. It is such a beautiful building.

SRQ said...

I'm flipping my computer screen around.... : ) Cool perspective...beautiful building with a beautiful blue sky.

Interesting perspective and wonderful building.

[I'm not big into cakes and since I'd had sachertorte on previous visits to the city I passed this time. ;-) ]

Shot from a very interesting angle! I'm trying to see how far I have to turn my head to get a look at it the way you must have had to.

NEVER have I fantasized to visit a city more than now--Versailles.
All due to your photos, and willingness to share.

Thank you for one more venue to add to my dreams!

PEACE!
