The centre of Bourges sits on a hill rising from the marshes of the River Yèvre, in the shadow of its main attraction, the magnificent early Gothic cathedral. Having seen the cathedral, many people move straight on, but the rest of the city is worth at least a couple of hours of wandering, with a number of ancient hôtels and burghers' houses displaying the wealth of a place that was built to rival the ruling provincial city of Dijon.
These "twins" are located at Rue Bourbonnoux, parallel to rue Moyenne to the east of the cathedral.

Greetings from Warszawa!

The half-timber technique is strongly enhanced by the paintwork!
Fine details in the facade and the blue and white colour combo is overall appealing...
Point of view adds some dynamic lines in composition!

Hello Aleksander ,
I like a lot this very low POV . But What is very attractive , too , is the texture of the old blue wood .
A superb example of half timbered architecture .

Great low angel pov with interesting architecture. I like that strange kind of greenish blue on the wooden beams.

Indeed this one is a bit humerous, but it is also a well made picture. The overall combination of colours is splendid. Nice soft tones.
I like the texture of the plaster and the wood, specially in the centre part of the photo.

the strong perspective combined with the super fine details create an interesting 3D effect on this particular façade. The light was also well managed and it seems it was not an easy task. Very good job!

quel cadrage, fantastique, quelle pureté dans les tons, le blanc et le bleu avec ce ceil, une fenêtre ouvert, la'autre fermée, une emrveille.
Bravo et amitié

très bon choix de point de vue; J'aime bien comment ces façades ressortent sous cette lumière. Bel ensemble.

I like the blue timber, it is not so common and helps the view look brighter, nice and well exposed one where the open/close is a nice detail
have a nice day jY

love the patterns and symmetry. the only main difference being one window shutter is open, one closed.
The textures come alive with the amount of details.
colours are vivid and striking.
great upwards POV
Have a wonderful w/e
