Adobe wall. Close-up of a wall made from Adobe clay bricks. Adobe, a Spanish word, is used to describe both the sundried bricks and the clay from which they are made. The bricks have been used in building since ancient times. However, as they disintegrate when wet they can only be used in regions of limited rainfall. Photographed in the South of France.
