Une petite image d'une tout ancienne maison avec l'usure sur la façade tout part et fait comme un dessin.
Belle journée

Bonjour, cher ami Nicolas,
En effet, la façade aurait besoin d'une bonne rénovation, l'enduit se détache joliment et ce balcon à la belle ferronnerie se remarque par sa beauté.
Une bonne image.

Salut Nicolas,
Bien cadré ce mur décrépi, la netteté et la luminosité donnent ainsi du relief à ce mur, bon effet également avec les reflets lumineux et bleutés pour les vitrages.

Hello Nicolas, Are in Switzerland such dilapidated houses? It seems that the people are still living there. Nice balcony. Good composition.

Witaj Nico!
Piêkne okna i balkon.
Ja lubiê to.
£adny kadr i kolorystyka.
Super ¶wiat³o i kolorystyka.

Hello Nicolas,
The house is in a bad shape but even then you managed a photo of a certain beauty. The areas where the plaster has fallen form quite attractive shapes, and I like the windows too. Some of them reflect the blue sky, some have nice wooden shutters and some are yellow. All details together make a nice composition with beautiful light and colours.
Kind regards,

Hello Nicolas,
I appreciate this type of composition very much. I like the symmetrical framing and the agreeable ambient light. Excellent rendering of the colours and textures in the peeling paintwork. I wonder why one doorway seems to have been blocked up?

Salut Nicolas,

It's very unusual and unexpected to see something like this in perhaps the wealthiest country in Europe. This is more in keeping with a scene from Sicily or Portugal. The weathered walls, peeling paint and damaged shutters form textural nuances and the image is well framed and composed. Nice repetition of the windows surrounding the balcony. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

Bonjour Nico,

A very nice balcony, but the wall asks a little paint.
Sharpness and clarity are superb.
Nice colours and pleasant presentation.
Very well done, TFS.

Bravo et bonne journée,

Bonjour Nicolas,

Pour le propriétaire il est temps de passer du : mon bâtiment est charmant à mon bâtiment a besoin de réparations. Les textures sont belles et j'aime beaucoup les reflets du ciel dans les fenêtres.

It is a pity of such a nice building, I hope it will be renovated soon. The falling plaster created an interesting abstract drawing, well captured

Bonjour Nicolas

Cette façade raconte sa longue vie, sa splendeur passée. La lumière rasante met bien en évidence la matière du mur avec son revêtement qui s'écaille.
Bon WE

Hi Nicou,
That is quite photogenic old wall. Interesting to see chalk layers fallen of in such big pieces. Blue sky reflecting from windows adds good contrast.

Beautiful and deteailde view on this facade. Love the blues!

Regards, Jan

Hi Nicolas
Fascinating dilapidated wall and windows from yester years, well defined, stuffed with beautiful contrasting colour and geometric shapes. The dark blues hook the eyes as effective focal point but its the low angled light and textures that I love most. Well capture photographic bliss...
Best regards

Ciao Nicolas
questa facciata è davvero interessante, mi sarei fermato anch'io a fare una foto.
Inoltre ci sono i vetri blu che aggiungono colore e interesse alla foto.
Buon we

Bonjour Nicou,
Point n'est besoin d'avoir des façades flambant neuf pour faire de belles photos !
Ici le crépis déchiré agit comme décoration dentelée . L'emplacement de l'ancienne porte donne de la couleur, ainsi que les reflets bleutés dans les rideaux des fenêtres.
La balustrade en fer forgé ressort bien également. Même les vieux volets apportent un plus.
Bravo !

Hi Nicolas,

Beautiful old façade. Nice colors and textures in very good light. I like these old buildings.

Warm regards


Hi Nicolas
I'm a fan of these old walls and windows type of photography.
No matter where I go around the world, I try to capture these as well. great to have the chipped walls, the old iron balcony, the sun dried window shutters, and the blue tint on the window curtains. lovely shot :)

Hi Nicolas,
Very nice and interesting picture showing those old decaying façades!
Composition, colors, exposure and sharpness are perfect.
Best regards
