      Rouen is a beautiful city. I rather fell in love with it. They had a wonderous Saturday market, too, that we were lucky enough to enjoy.

    are this distortion done for a purpose or design?


    1. Misky says:

      Hello, Amar. It’s neither by design not purpose. It’s all caused by nature, when the building’s foundation moves in the soil. These buildings date back to the 1500s, and most of the structural movement happened centuries ago. Many old buildings show this type distortion, although this example is extreme.

      Thanks for stopping by for a look and for leaving a comment. I’m off to your blog now to see your photo! šŸ˜€
