[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I have a recent photo for this theme, taken a few days before Easter in an Alsacian village, depicting a traditional timber framed house (maison à colombages) from this region, whose possesion was changed several times, during centuries, between France and Germany.
Today the cultural German influence can be observed not only in architecture.

In WS I posted, as detail, the upper side of the facade.

Bonjour SOrina,

Quelle superbe demeure alsacienne avec ses colombages très apparents, il y a une vie dans ce cliché, la fontaine, les couleurs vives qui soulignent la beauté de cette maison!!!

Hi Sorina
This is a good one for the theme. It is interesting to see all the timber patterns on the house, and especially all the added decorations.
Thank you for sharing

Ciao Sorina!
Imi plac atiti de mult acest stil de case, de fapt cum sint si casele in zona in care eu locuiesc.
Frumoasa fintina!
Excelenta poza pentru tema de vineri!
Salutari si numai bine!

Bonsoir Sorina,

Nice participation to the theme. I like the sharpness and the color saturation. Having been in Germany few months, it reminds me souvenirs and it is quite typical to that part of the world. Nice work and TFS.


les maisons de ce petit village alsacien sont superbes. Tu en as réalisé une très belle photo, lumineuse et colorée.

warm regards

Hello Sorina, a very nice architectural picture, well composed, good quality, well done thanks!


A very bright and lively composition showing an interesting architecture. I think that the shutters at the windows are not original, they are typical of South Europe and don't fit with that style. A fine work.
