In the district of Albinque Castres in the Tarn, the Morris column and the steeple of the Church of St. Louis .
Morris column is part of the original Parisian street furniture, but present in many French cities.
Morris Columns were created in 1868 by the printer Gabriel Morris, who gave them his name, but the invention returns to Berlin Ernst Litfass who had introduced in Berlin in 1854 .
In Paris in the early 19th century , theaters are increasing at a rapid pace . At this time, the public display is not regulated and displaying any kind of advertising takes place on urinals have a billboard on the outside but also on the walls and trees. It smells bad, and so you have this problem of hygiene. The " columns urinals " are thus replaced by the Morris columns to display and the urinals in the toilets .
These cylindrical columns were intended first theatrical display and film , but also used warehouse equipment cleaning the streets of the capital. Green cast their roof was composed of a hexagonal canopy , decorated the corners of six lions' heads , all topped with a curved dome, decorated with scales and an ornate acanthus leaves arrow.
Today, Morris columns have become iconic objects in the image of Paris , as well as Wallace fountains and metro entrances Hector Guimard .

The dramatically treated sky creates a fine backdrop to the trees, column and tower that are seen from a fine, low POV. The strong contrasts and good sharpness help to make this an interesting photo.

the mono treatment helps to accentuate the interesting shapes of the buildings and bring a nice dramatic effect to the sky.

This black & white picture looks like from Hollywood's horror movie. Maybe this is the effect you want. It is one of kind picture we do not normally see. Thanks for sharing.

C'est une bonne idée que d'avoir immortalisé ce petit bout de patrimoine au regard de l'église. Le noir est blanc est adapté et les nuages sont au rendez vous !... et ta note est instructive.
Bien vu !

bon choix du noir et blanc. Le commentaire est instructif.
Ces colonnes Moris sont plus sympas que les panneaux.

The terrific angle that you chose gives the sky such a dominant place in this photo - it creates a different context for the other subjects in the frame. Very original and enjoyable!
All the best,
