I like taking pictures of old buildings but even more interesting are some of the details ,like this chain with a handle which will ring the bell when you pull it.

An old wall constructed with slate and mud.

A long time ago this building probably accommodated a fancy boutique.

This was an advertisement for vetements meaning clothing.

I like the blue and the peeling color.

An impressive stucco element over the entrance of an even older palais.

A gargoyle at the side of the street.

Same gargoyle from a distance.Took all these pictures in La Rochelle /France last summer on a very quiet Sunday afternoon.I hope that the sun will be back soon ...
