Joli jeu d'ombres sur ce beau carrelage.
Tom Wilson: Merci, Martine.
Wonderful - I love it when details are not left out of the ceilings and floors!!
Tom Wilson: They really went to town on this building! It's built on the ruins of, I think, a convent attached to the adjoining church, which the church authorities gave permission for - God and Mammon getting along smile
beautifully done, Tom. i like the angle.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Ayush.

This would have been a fine place to exchange some stock Tom
Tom Wilson: I suspect the place functioned as a stockbrokers' club smile

The skill of the paviors
Tom Wilson: Indeed!
Besides looking up, Tom, I love looking down and finding such treasures! This is a good one.
Tom Wilson: We've got to keep our eyes open!
That is a superb ceramic floor Tom, I would not mind a bit of it in my house.
Tom Wilson: You'd need a pretty big hallway or large room to show it off, Chad smile
Wonderfully captured with this light/shadow play Tom! Great POV.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.
I like how you have made such an interesting photo with the angle.

I have been to only two stock exchanges in my life - a far cry from this place.
Tom Wilson: The stockbrokers obviously did themselves proud!
Just imagine being the person who had to cut all those tiles to shape.
Tom Wilson: Quite a job, eh?
