Since there is the storm outside you might as well make use of the chance to do interior shots...I like them all, This look rather modern, but humble for 19th century kitchen, at lease for me comparing to what we had in Laos only some 20 years ago, not to mention from last century...
Wait, I think I see a cell phone laying on the table :) That wold be funny if someone left a cell phone there. Love those copper pots and pans.
Love these clouds, especially out in the desert. Okay, this image is more about the church, but this clouds make it stand out very well. It is pretty amazing culture out there. Sometimes I wonder what their life would have been like if Columbus didn't find America. Would the Indians still live the way they live moving from places to place or do they settle and build a city just like the rest.
I don't see too many Indians in the cities, maybe they blend in and I don't notice them, or maybe they like the quiet life out in their reservation.
I wish to explore more the area in the future. This reminded me of some the churches similar in South America.
Even without knowing the location (or knowing it was your image) I would have guessed this is France; it looks so typical. The architecture is almost perfectly symmetrical. Just the chimney on the right not matched by one on the left.

JMarcguillaumejm (2017/10/23 20:25:51): Hello kath
The most funny is when you look on the site of this natural park it is wrtiiten about this house :
The Park House is the administrative center of the Morvan Regional Nature Park. It is a property of 40ha which consists of a set of buildings grouping the various services of the Park.
Attacked in 1793 during the Revolution, the old mansion of the seventeenth century located near the river "Vignan" was then sold and demolished. The property, witness of a nobility and agricultural past, then served between 1802 and 1803 to the construction of a new castle, "Aux petites fourches".
This set of buildings, was built in an original style imported by an English architect. The structure of the house consists of a rectangular block with thick walls and small windows to protect the harsh and contrasting climate of the Morvan
So the style is "original" but from an English architect :)
I have tried to capture something similar. It is very eye-catching. I like the fact you have the reflected light as well as shadows. This is my favourite of the series, but I also like the air of mystery on #s 2 and 6
I like all the images in your series but have to say the sunlight on the first 3 images benefits the colourful leaves. All the images make good use of perspective. Autumn here is hit and miss as usual.
jolie abstraction sur le post principal.
j'aime aussi beaucoup la dernière de la série. Normalement je la trouverai trop sombre, mais la petite porte avec la silhouette qui entre ou sort ... je trouve ça super.
guillaumejm (2017/10/22 15:15:20): Bonjour
Je msuis fait piege tres souvent aussi
J'ai deja demande si on pouvait modifier mais techniquement ce n'est pas si simple. Si j'ai bien compris la reponse n'est pas stockee a part. Du coup c'est plus compliqué qu'il n'y parait
JmarcCLODO (2017/10/22 11:18:35): J'ai envoyé trop tôt et ne peux pas corriger mes fautes de la fin de la dernière phrase! On pourrait pas améliorer le site en ce sens, pouvoir modifier ses réponses?CLODO (2017/10/22 11:15:11): Bonne analyse, ce petit détail fait que ce n'est pas uniquement une photo des vitraux. J'ai bien sûr exposé pour le vitrail d'où la masse noire de l'intérieur de l'église qui ne sistrait pa sle regard.
This looks as a fort, ready to sustain the invaders for a long period. Its straight lines contrast with the cloudy sky
BabaCam (2017/10/22 09:29:18): Never thought about it as a Fort :-) This is all Pueblo style. I absolutely fell in love with the straight clear lines and the building material. The most famous images from around here were made by Ansel Adams and the painter Georgia O'Keeffe, not sure about this particular church ... but definitely the one that stands in Taos. This is all so "O'Keefee-y" around here.
More from Wikipedia:
[...] Pueblos are modern and old communities of Native Americans in the Southwestern United States. The first Spanish explorers of the Southwest used this term to describe the communities housed in apartment structures built of stone, adobe mud, and other local material. These structures were usually multi-storied buildings surrounding an open plaza. The rooms were accessible only through ladders lowered by the inhabitants, thus protecting them from break-ins and unwanted guests. Larger pueblos were occupied by hundreds to thousands of Pueblo people. Several different federally recognized tribes have traditionally resided in pueblos of such design. [...]
Cher ami Frank,
Un miroir parfait reproduisant ce superbe château du 18e siècle. Toute la splendeur de ce sicèle est valorisée à travers cette composition.
Une présentation soignée comme à l'accoutumée.
I like a lot all these greens and yellows! This should be a very nice walk to enjoy the autumn and its colours, maybe watching some birds still around. October is always gold for me, since I was born in this month. Very nice mood..
Best regards from rainy Curitiba,
There's a very autumnal light in all these photos and the long shadows show that sun is already very low. Living in a city with these surroundings must be enjoyable. The birch trees in your main photo flash up wonderfully. However, soon all colours will be past ...
In your series I like photo Nr. 4 the best - because of the wonderful colours.
Greetings from rather autumnal Westphalia! Rain, wind, chill ...
There's a beautiful palette of colours in this - I think - cherry tree. The gradual depth of focus makes the picture interesting and attractive. Soon all this splendour will be over ...
Greetings to you both from very autumnal Siegen! Brrr!
