Rooftops, lichen and the Tate cafe

I recently posted photos of St Ives, and Jude commented on the abundance of lichens on the roof tops, a sign of clean air. She is our expert on Cornish towns and gardens, especially the far west, and hopefully she will post some photos to compare our take on the roof top views.

We both have photos taken from the cafe of the Tate gallery, the one above was an attempt to use the panorama setting on my phone. It seems to have concaved a window that I thought was convex. Never mind, the view was perfect, as was the food, quiche with salad and Pimms jelly with cucumber sorbet!

If you go back to the inside café there are views of the town and the bay.


Now you can see those lichened roofs.


Nelson has a home here as well, his gang can be seen all over the town.

And I rather liked this colourful little deck garden. I wonder if the people living in these cottages get any privacy, they must be so photographed.
This wordless Wednesday photo was taken from the café as well, the depth of field created a rather odd perspective.
