[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The town of San Gimignano has many fine examples of Romanesque and Gothic architecture. As well as churches and medieval fortifications, there are notable examples of Romanesque secular and domestic architecture which may be distinguished from each other by their round and pointed arches, respectively. A particular feature which is typical of the region of Siena is that the arches of openings are depressed, with doorways often having a second low arch set beneath a semi-circular or pointed arch. Both Romanesque and Gothic windows sometimes have a bifurcate form, with two openings divided by a stone mullion under a single arch.

The stone and brickwork in the foreground walling shows many alteration over the years, its always facsinating to see hows things once were.

Very interesting capture.

Hi Francis, It is always nice to know the history of an architecture which once was before. So thank for your useful note here about these architectures. Mother Nature has no mercy on them, they look very wear out., but they wear out with great glories. I like the natural colours and the man walking towards to the back., they add extra life to the image. Thank for sharing

Hello Francis, a good PoV which shows us so much.
Particularly the view through the large arch to give us a glimpse of the town.The man adds to the composition.
Lovely shapes and textures.
Regards Jean.
