Leffingestreet Bruges

The god house Cobrysse, now Leffingestraat 5-11, was built in 1663 in Bruges by Paul Cobrysse and his wife Margaretha de Meulenaere, as godtshuys to the residence of six "aerme females of good faeme" "dialect" poor women of a good family. The façade consisted of three stepped gables, each with three round-shaped attic openings in a checkered frame. The construction was a continuation of an approval granted in 1640 to Joost Cobrysse, father of Paul, but which he could not realize by his death in 1642.
Until the end of the ancien regime, the cottages were managed by members of the Cobrysse family and by the Armendis of St. Anne's Church. The French era, as a national good, she became the property of the Committee of Civil Godhouses

I hope you can enjoy.

Hello John,
Perfect pov and layout as well as light management. And of course sharpness.
Nice framing and interesting notes.
TFS and best regards

Hallo John,
Toch fantastisch dat reeds in de 17de eeuw toen er nog helemaal geen sociale voorzieningen waren de welvarende inwoners van Brugge voorzagen in huisvesting voor ouderen die niet in eigen onderhoud konden voorzien.
Voor die tijd een prachtig huis en het ontbrak niet aan extra versieringen boven de deur.
Spijtig dat het nu meestal niet zonder geparkeerde auto's kan gefotografeerd worden.
Een schitterend en mooi scherp beeld.
Vele groeten, Paul

Witaj John!
Curious old house.
Interesting roof and chimneys.
I like frame, colors and light.
Well done.
Good evening.

Hi John,

The composition is well divided, the sky, the house and the cars. The point of view is showing the details of the house and of the cars. The light is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.


Hello John,
It is a charming historic building with two modern cars and an electric scooter. Nice contrast between modern and antique.

Ciao John
una costruzione di trecento anni prima che nascessi....
Semplicemente affascinante, oltre che bella.

Hi John
Lovely straight on shot focusing on the architectural details of this humble looking old house. The vehicles just pull the image together and there's some good light and rich colour too. Contrast to deep blue sky is so superb to look! Congrats
Best regards

Hallo John,
Een prachtig oud gebouw, dat nog in goede staat verkeert. De kleuren van de deuren en de kozijnen steken mooi af tegen de witte muren. De scherpte is uitstekend, wat vooral goed te zien is aan de oranje dakpannen.

Hello John,

The red tiled roof contrasts superbly against the blue sky. And the 2 blue cars either side. Good sharpness and well framed and composed. Tfs!

Bonjour, cher ami John,
Là, on ne peut pas se tromper quant à la date de construction, et l'on ne peut que s'émerveiller de voir encore de nos jours une telle bâtisse où l'histoire a son mot à dire.
Belle présentation.

Dag John
Een prachtige herkenbare foto. Hier in Haarlem zijn (gelukkig) ook nog een paar mooie voorbeelden van deze vroegere liefdadigheid voor oude, arme mensen.
Klein maar fijn kun je nu over deze gebouwen zeggen.
Groet uit een zonovergoten en warm Haarlem, Rob
(vanmiddag verkoeling in het Concertgebouw, morgen maar weer fietsen)

Ciao John, great view of lovely house, fine details, excellent clarity, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bonjour John
Intéressant détails de cette maison historique, sous une lumière bien capturer, bien présenter et composer
Belle soirée

Beau temps avec 27°D

fraaie uitsnede John,
die scoot mobile maakt het helemaal hier goede foto.

The historic house shown well with bright daylight upon its wide façade, John, not possible to include a full view - what we see is fine.
The small tractor and the orange vest on the parking made me smile when looking at first...
I can see each red roof-tile mounted, a fine photo.
Good afternoon,
