I made an account just to say that I am sorry but you're wrong. Gothic Architecture has a set of characteristics that make it Gothic. There are plenty of Norman buildings made in the 1400's.

Gothic Architecture almost exclusively emphasizes :
1 - Light - plenty of windows, whenever possible.
2 - Ribbing - roof ribbing to conceal the roof.
3 - Pointed Arches - Not Roman pointed arches.
4 - Buttressing - Whether flying or columnar.
5 - Lancets

Late Gothic includes crockets, Pinnacles, tracery and flamboyant symbolism.

This building is in fact a Neo-Romanesque style building built between 1873-1880.

Could have made a nice source if the high res was much bigger so we could use the texture... now it is hardly usable IMHO

This is a great portrait with wonderful light. However, I don't feel the clothing is all that unusual. Putting on a hat and glasses with a very "normal" pair of jeans and shirt doesn't really say unusual to me. Great photo, though!

I like the people, they make it look like a bus shelter, and not just another empty photo. The Bus Information sign behind them anchors the image's purpose.
