Default To emjleclercq: Flying buttresses

Hello Emmanuel,
Thank you for your kind words. The Cologne Cathedral is a fantastic building, and hard to see all at once since it is so large, so I photographic it "in pieces", which gives more detail, I think.

"Arc boutants" are flying buttresses in English. I think the French term is more descriptive than the English one, but whatever they are named, they keep the building from falling down.

Best regards,
