Kissing Houses

Kissing Houses (buildings 9)
Vannes is full of beautiful half-timbered medieval houses that lean towards each other almost kissing at roof level.
I like the complex patterns the painted timbers make and the strange topple down feeling of the whole town, as if someone once upon a time made the place out of a collection of little sticks and cards leaning them every which way to help them stand up.

I would commit a crime to see you make a Work In Progress, .....

Envy me.

It's not only kissing houses, you make them sooooo well that they also become kissing souls!
