Hello Stephen. No beautiful motive escapes your watchful view. The old house has an interesting mixture from stone and framework. The front is very beautiful to regard. A further photographic document well taken and worth seeing. Many greetings, Wolfgang.

this is one of the best...not so much sky here and loads of upfront detail..the contrasts of stone and wood is pleasant and blends well
i expect they are fairly new windows and doors but blend in quite well..chimney could be blown away..:) cloning that is
cheers and thanks

LOL love the name of the restaurant, although I have to say it is not a very motivating one to enter the place, with "Les gros ventres" I'd step in at once ;-)
I like the architecture, lovely old houses and I'd not spontaneously imagine to find such style in Limoges, the light is pleasant on the house and the modern door/windows add a contrasting touch to the much older half timbered facade, Just pity you cut the chimney. A nice add to this picture would be to shoot it just as somebody enters the restaurant.
Have a nice day,

That looks like it's about to crumble and fall. Great building. Makes you want to go in for a meal. Nice shot Stephen.

Another very good picture of old buildings. I do enjoy these and despite the fact that i've been twice in Limoges i didn't spot this one...
Your point of view is nice focusing on the whole of the building. It's a shame that the youngsters have used some soort of graffity on the wall on the left of the picture. Maybe you can 'erase' those?

Wonderful colours the honey coloured timber against the black timber & natural stone walls looks really nice.
The day is beautiful which provided good light & sunshine on the pretty flowers in the window boxes.
Very good Perspective - excellent clarity a really lovely image.
