Normandy, France. Easter 2013

shit it was cold.

nice day here however...
i like the various angles of the roof, particularly the way the foreground upper roof seems to have been built to follow the gutter line...can that really be?

 some massive walls, also in Caen

wonderful ruin, some form of loading/sorting/pit-head facility beside it's railway...seen under a grey sky in drizzle, the perfect viewing conditions.

my not very original or profound masters thesis on cubism & architecture could have been summed up by a single image of the interior of this structure....

Royal Danish Embassy - Sloane Street, London SW1X. Arne Jacobsen / Dissing + Weitling 1969-1977

 Thanks to Bjarne for these images of the back/courtyard of the embassy which is the more interesting if less publicly visible part of the building.

Hope to be able to visit ourselves soon.
