    Found in Vissigen that suburb near Sion.

    There is an old farm there beneath the high buildings and it has become an active cultural place. There are artists in residences, exhibitions in the barn, a restaurant with a nice garden for the summer and where small events take place (music, philosophic speeches etc). There are a few sculptures around the barn which could also serve as playing ground for the youth.

    A7r2 and 90mm TSE

    I use an old model - no longer available - adapter from Kipon. It does not support AF but gives all data and on camera diafragma control. There seems to be a new one from Kipon. May be you can PM Scho (Carl). I think in the end he bought the Wringler AF adapter which is not cheap but seems to be very good.
    The lenses are great, also the 70-200 I have is very good and an ideal travel kit for me.

    Thanks Barry, I am not a big fan of the human species But you can always find results of human activitys on my pictures.

    If you look well you can see a lot of people on this one on top of the cliff in the far distance.

    Signs of spring. In hindsight, probably should have had the FE 90mm macro.

    Vissigen and the castle of Tourbillon

    I found it funny that the flag is floating under the castle. Usually there are four flags floating over the castle (you can see the naked poles).

    A7r1 and TSE 90mm F3.5

    This is known as the Portwrinkle stack - A cormorant is sitting on the very top of the stack.
    This is the third time I have attempted to get to these rocks and today I finally succeeded, itís only a short 4 mile walk round trip but hard going along the soft sands.
    You have to time it just right with regards to the tide times otherwise itís very easy to get cut off by the sea and trapped against the cliffs; itís a beautiful uninhabited part of Cornwall.

    Construction site, Port-Louis, Mauritius island, 1996.

    Photographed with the Contax G2 and digitized with the A7rII and FE 90mm macro and converted to B&W with Silver effex.

    Lake Vyrnwy Straining Tower
    The straining tower at Vyrnwy is an imposing castle like structure a total of 48 metres high, standing in about 15 metres of water, which stands by the lake quite close to the dam.
    Lake Vyrnwy supplies Liverpool with water, and it travels there along a 70 mile aqueduct which starts at the Straining Tower, where any detritus is removed by a mesh filter.
    A7RII + FE 70-200mm

    I was confused; This should be Yveport with bunker! I don't know of any bunkers in Etretat.
    I did post a picture, some years ago; Etretat with golf course.
    You have a good memory!

    Thank you SEB, I drove around the lake and only found a few places where there were gaps in the dense underbrush to take a shot of the gothic tower...I will upload a few more later when I have more time...Thanks again.

    The Magnolias are in full bloom now, soon too litter the yard with their luscious petals and get on with disguising themselves as "just another tree," declaring that Spring is finally here...

    A nice day today, at last. On the way home, I had to take out my loxia 21:
    The face of Zurich is changing. The industrial part was sold to investors a few years ago and they build luxury flats in "sky scrapers". But they build too much and sold them to people without roots in the city itself. Some of them are still not sold and the whole area has a touch of dead now. Only one owner didn't sell his old building, but put "Resistance" in the same letters as the nearby Hotel Renaissance on the face of the building.

    Mmm that is a difficult question.. I'm not sure that I can answer, but may be some contextual information may help you understand what I'm after.

    1) I'm selftaught in matters of photography. I have no special visual education apart of the fact that I shared the life of an architect for a few years. I have a scientific background having studied history/geography and specialized in urban studies and quantitative methods.

    2) So I can tell you why the subject interest me : while I'm now retired, I have kept a strong interest in everything concerning urbanism, planning and architecture. I want to show the urban landscape and everyday's environment. I'm interested by space in general and how the human beings occupy and mark the territory. Those spaces are interesting to my eyes because this the frame/environment where people live. That is : I want to show unremarkable places because ordinary people live there. Well once you begin to ram a neighborhood, it is no more true that the buildings are unremarkable. You can see traces of different periods of the history and each neighborhood has its own character.

    3) I know that I get more likes when I show the pictures of the two castles.. But they are a little too "postcardish". Even if I do still appreciate that view and catch a picture each time the light or weather is a little special.

    4) Getting a good and successful picture of those everyday environments which a priori are unremarkable is much more compelling and probably a little too much for my skills. But I'm trying hard..

    5) that building with its flat facade and the serial repetition and variation of the position of the windows has something fascinating for me. I liked the red toboggan and the dwarfed playground. That said : may be I shouldn't have shown that picture : in fact I would have liked a slightly larger view (but I only had a the 24mm and 90mm, while the 45mm would have been better.

    6) I want to show the soul of these places. I have strange tastes when it comes to buildings .. I like everything modern and contemporary which many people think are ugly. But well, I'm probably not really up to the task. I examine carefully every picture of Michiel Shierbeek because his subjects of interest are near of mines and I study how he solved problems I also have (how he is dividing space, where he cut the frame, how he balance things, etc..

    7) to sum up : I should leave my window and practice more in order to get better at what I want to achieve.

    Thanks for looking.

    Thank you so much Anna for your candid answer. Much appreciated.
    Several of your recent urban images, I think, already gave a clue about your interests and motivations.
    I certainly would encourage you to pursue your intent as outlined in point 6) above.
    If you do, these kind of images could become your personal signature, easily recognizable as such. All good!
    As I have mentioned before I typically recognize Michiel Shierbeek's images by their style before looking who posted the image.

    Now to your specific image and why I asked my question.
    I also picked up on the red and the small play ground for children, as well as on the uniformity of window layout and their shades, or whatever the horizontal and vertical strips are.
    However, I felt the image was unfortunately cut off at the top, may be even a bit to the right.
    Your point 5) gives an explanation for that. Many thanks.

    Again, thanks for posting the image and your candid explanations.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Thank you for your explanation and words of encouragement. seems that I really need to add the 45mm TSE to my lens collection
    In fact, I had shot there about three years ago with the Canon 6d and wanted to revisit the place with the A7r. But it was very cold and may be that influenced the results, because I prefer what I did in 2013 to what I've got last week. Here is the former shot of that building (sometimes I like to have people in them, but very small and from far away) :
