Splendid photos. Landscapes with trees or buildings reflecting on water are always attractive. My uncle the pastellist made a lot of landscapes with still or moving water. His rendering of moving water, cascades especially, is always amazing.At first sight, I thought the second photo was a crematorium, probably because I get closer and closer! The chimney is so tall for such a small house!
Well we're all getting closer and closer. But here's hoping you go well into triple digits chm. What struck me in these photos is how much mistletoe there is in the trees.
Hi D….. Well, if I make it, the triple digit is at the end of next year. I’m looking forward to know how it feels to be a centenarian and to begin a new century.
LOL, chm. I do wonder why that chimney is so large. Maybe it was used for baking? This canal is lovely.
Ken, how are you liking your new computer, and the fiber optic connection? Any good or bad differences for you?
I like the new computer but it doesn't have enough USB ports for my external hard disks. It has a very nice screen, though — much better than the screen on my old laptop. With fiber, everything zips right along. The upload speed is especially faster, so when i upload photos to put on the blog I hardly have to wait at all, compared to before. And a side benefit of the fiber is the good, crisp quality the sound I get when I call a friend in California on her cell phone. It's like we're in the same room.
That so-called “chimney” may not be one and does not seem to be attached to the house. It looks like the Pile of Saint-Mars-la-Pile and might be another smaller one…
The "pile" at Cinq-Mars-la-Pile is a two-thousand-year-old Gallo-Roman structure. I don.t think the "pile" in Noyers is that old! Briqueterie ? Tuilerie?
I'm going to guess that it is a brick kiln for pottery and ceramics. They require this sort of chimney.
What's on your mind? Qu'avez-vous à me dire ?
