Balconies of Quimper, Brittany, France

It’s been a while since I last posted mainly because of work and holidays getting in the way and being distracted by my Drascombe Lugger restoration project.

But I did spot these fine wrought iron balconies in Quimper,  – a city that reminded me a lot of Canterbury in a French kind of way.



Been out and about shooting a number of car dealerships today but noticed this when I was unloading my gear at the last showroom in Battersea.  The building is Falcon Wharf, by Burland TM Architects and was built by George Wimpey.  The building won a BHA award in 2007 and although the building itself left me rather lukewarm, I did like the way the afternoon sun revealed the contents of all those balconies and rooms.
