The Adam House.

One sight.
Architectural detail.

The Adam House of 15th century, place Sainte-croix, behind the cathedral, also called House of Adam and Eve or the Tree of Life.
It is a Gothic middle-class house with wood sides. The posts of its five stages, with corbelling and half-timberings in rhombus, are decorated of about fifty carved characters, representing religious, legendary or fantastic characters.
Most known of the sculptures, called the “tricouillard”, its anatomy shows.

The name of the house comes from the apple tree which supports the watch tower, framed before the French revolution of the statues of Adam and Eve.
She is classified historic building, and accommodates today the House of the Craftsmen of Angers.

Angers is a French commune, located in the department of Maine-et-Loire of the area of the Pays de la Loire, populated of 151179 Angevins in 1999, distributed out of 44 km ², that is to say 3407 hab./km².

Angers is the prefecture of the department of Maine-et-Loire, and the old capital of Anjou, located at the edge of Maine, close to its confluence with the Loire.
The city is classified with the world heritage of UNESCO.

It is a familiar city of which I know well the boarding school of the Chevrollier college and the halls of residence of the campus of Belle-Beille.

Lovely capture of the architecture Joel. Good hues and textures and a very idyllic and relaxed scene with nice natural hues and lights

Bonjour Joël,

La vue de 3/4 permet de voir avec précision les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture de deux côtés de la maison Adam. La présence des personnes a un effet d'échelle de grandeur. Les arbres cadrent bien la maison. La bonne luminosité a un bel effet sur les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Joël,
A good capture of this splendid house, which I also have in my armoury ;-) I like the point of view with the framing from the statue on the right. The couple looking in the window contribute to the Sunday morning atmosphere. Pleasing low key tones and very good sharpness. Well done.

Bonjour Joël,

J'ignorais que le fondateur de TE avait une maison à Angers. .)
Très beau cadrage qui montre cette belle demeure dans son environnement urbain. Les branches d'arbre sur la droite de l'iamge donne de la profondeur, bonne idée.
Amitiés,
Roger

WOW! A really great building!!! Impressive and beautiful. Nice pov and superb detail. TFS

Salut Joël,
Une prise de jour très intéressante. Connaissant bien les lieux pour les avoir photographier la nuit, j'apprécie tout ce soin apporté au cadrage.
Dommage pour les nuages un peu sur-ex, mais je n'aurais certainement pas mieux fait tant ces prises urbaines de hautes façades sont difficiles.
Amicalement,
Fabrice
