old Orléans


This old home in Orléans is a classic... and in such near perfect condition.

    1. Yeah, and talk about making good use of one's property. This is somewhat like the flat iron in NYC.

  5. Yes you can see the wood trim is perfect. What a very lovely lamp! Wouldn't it be so interesting to see how these obviously proud owners have decorated inside, would be weird if it was ultra modern :)

    1. Well, you never know here. It could be modern or traditional. In any case, I would love to see the inside.

  6. I wonder when it was built... Hopefully before the Flatiron!

    1. This house is on rue de la Poterne where it's making a climb up from the Loire towards downtown. Just across the street is a park that looks out over the plaza with the movie theater. Anyway, steps leading up to the park (and also an interesting modern restaurant) give one the opportunity to shoot the house from a higher than street level vantage point.

    1. Well I find the architecture in Provence to be equally interesting... but yes, quite different. I love the subtle colors of the walls there.
