Не так давно я писала, як до нас в хату залітав мутант-коник-стрибунець 😖А вчора мали нічні пригоди з шершнем 🐝Він був гігантський! При чому @lhubertl ганяв його по квартирі десь годину, аж поки вдалося випустити ☹️От скажіть, ЯК вони залітають на 9 (❗️) поверх? І якщо в нас таке робиться, то що тоді на першому?🤔Словом, треба ставити москітну сітку...
Pics from my first phototour some weeks ago.
Altenberger Dom near cologne, Germany. It's an old monastery church, built in 1255.
I didn't have to much time, so I left the details and inside for the next tour 😉

Built on an elevated property along the rocky coast of Greenwich with views out to Calf Island and other small islands is this remarkable custom home designed by Austin Patterson Disston Architects. Finished in native Connecticut stone, the 10,000 square foot residence was designed to take full advantage of the location with unobstructed water views from nearly every room.
The main structure rises from the centre of the sacred pool. An archway on the western side of the pool opens on to the causeway, bordered with balustrades of fretted marble, and, at close intervals, there are standard lamps, their great lanterns set upon marble columns.
In the interior, on the ground floor, is the Guru Granth Sahib, placed under a gorgeous canopy, studded with jewels. On the second storey is a pavilion known as Shish Mahal or Mirror Room, so designed as to have a square opening in the centre to view from there the ground floor, with the further provision of a narrow circumambulatory around the square opening.
Further above the Shish Mahal is again a small square pavilion, considerably small both at its base as well as in its elevation, surmounted by a low fluted golden dome, lined at its base with a number of smaller domes. The walls of the two lower storeys, forming parapets, terminate with several rounded pinnacles. There are four chhatris or kiosks at the corners. The combination of several dozens of large, medium and miniature domes of gilded copper create a unique and dazzling effect, enhanced by the reflection in the water below.
The typical art and architectural features of the Golden Temple are: (1) multiplicity of chhatris which ornament the parapets, angles at every prominence or projection
(2) the invariable use of fluted domes covered with gilded copper
(3) balconised windows thrown out on carved brackets or bay-windows with shallow elliptical cornices
(4) enrichment of walls, arches and ceilings by various forms of mural art.
