I went to Rouen mainly to see Gothic cathedral made famous by Claude Monetwho painted the same scene at different times of the day. But unfortunately part of the cathedral was covered. In Rouen there are many beautiful half-timbered houses and nice gate with a big clock. They were shown here already so this is a corner that I liked very much.
Rouen in northern France on the River Seine, is the capital of the Haute-Normandie (Upper Normandy) region and the historic capital city of Normandy. Once one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, it was the seat of the Exchequer of Normandy in the Middle Ages. It was here that Joan of Arc was executed in 1431.
Rouen is known for its Notre Dame cathedral, with its Tour de Beurre (butter tower) financed by the sale of indulgences for the consumption of butter during Lent. The cathedral's gothic facade (completed in the 1500s) was the subject of a series of paintings by Claude Monet, some of which are exhibited in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris.
Sorry for too big picture, I realized it only when it was ready :(.

un angolo molto caratteristico, quelli che a me piacciono in particolarmente.
Un'architettura antica e colorata, con molti dettagli da osservare, in particolare la finestra con il magnifico riflesso.

A nice close-up of signs, windows, wooden beams - and a few wires:-). There are also fine reflections seen in the window on the corner, telling us that there are other similar houses across the street.

This has me immediately interested on many levels. My love for the color blue, France, a creperie actually named "blue," and the vivid textures are some that first come to mind. I really like this shot, how you've isolated the signage and timbered design above with the rustic colors and old world charm. So many neat facets to absorb within this framework, I'm enjoying scanning over every detail and element. I must say though, I'm surprised you slowed down long enough to pick this out! ;) Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

i would say, you speeded up your uploads, but i would do the same if i had tens of thousands of photos in my pc. i am a bit disappointed that this one is gone unnoticed by TE members. besides the beauty of old architecture, that reflection detail is worth appreciation as it is very well seen. la créperie... mmm, i am a bit hungry now.
