I remember these three kinds of capitals. Now, what grade was I in when we were taught that, and is anyone taught it today?

Beautiful building.

@ Jack: I was taught that too. But I don't think anyone in France would learn that at school.

Love all the details and the shutters.

The columns give the impression of strength. And the capitals make it look like one classy building!

The columns are fantastic and so are the windows! I love that some shutters are open and others closed. Great shot.
