A whole building with the patina of age, love it! What stories it could tell if it could speak......!!??

I think it's the building settling, not machines! What a great building.

He remembers the house of Charlie, the child of the factory of chocolate...

Oh my goodness that house does look like it is being eaten away from the inside.

I would not stamp too firmly on the ground or it looks like several centuries of Fachwerkhaus may come tumbling down.

I am loving the pictures from France - it seems as if the sunlight was incredible - all the photos have such wonderful shadows.

I love the way the roofing in these old buildings sags.

Thanks for all the comments - really - these photos work much better in colour - perhaps I should switch to colour the next days - don't know ...

Roberto, yes - crooked and bent.

thlofl, yes, it was a wonderful sunny day - blue sky -- did I say something about colour photos?


@all, a friend of mine some weeks ago moved from a mediaeval Fachwerkhaus (half-timbered house?) into a 70's building - she is much more happy now - enough space and level walls for shelves, cupboards and the like ...
