Covered market Albi, detail ...
... from 1860 Albi decided to build a covered food market on the example of the Halles de Paris.
In 1901, the Albi council approved the launch of a competition for the construction of a covered market. In 1902, the agreement is given to the project by Thierry Bourdois, architect Poissy, assisted by a designer metal frames that will become known worldwide: André Michelin.
The plan adopted is a triangular hall type "Pavilion Baltard" combining the amounts of metal brick walls and blinds to be mounted like a giant lego.
Location trade and entertainment par excellence, the covered market was opened in 1905. It offers a rare harmony of shapes perfectly suited to its function.

Work superbly in B&W. Great POV, and contrast (achieved by the lighting and exposure). Great eye

Nice compact shot of the portion of the market. Excellent find and very well composed to create a beautiful graphical effect. The BW is a perfect choice to accentuate the design and light effects.
Very well done.

Que dire ? une belle photographie avec un traitement en noir et blanc qui est judicieux. C'est bien équilibré et bien cadré (de niveau aussi). Une image graphique avec de la transparence. Une bonne idée.
Bien vu !.

Magaly, I really like this photo a lot - the intersecting lines and varied light that form symmetries and asymmetries are superb. The POV that you've chosen works so well with the exterior lighting too. The effect is stunning!

Very sharp and clear symmmetry image in tasteful B&W color. Proportion and balance are so well considered and getting very nicely stable image too.
Thnaks a lot for your sharing and have a good day! Takero
