They come in all shapes and sizes, including the stadium. I was standing at the top of Stalin’s Gift, the Palace of culture, which like the stadium, pops up as a landmark to help you get your bearings.
Or not as the case may be. I must say that Warsaw challenged my pretty good sense of direction, but it was a short visit.
Today is the penultimate day of Becky’s June Square Challenge and it’s been a fascinating one. Today she has a very pointed roof with an odd story.
Which was covered in wisteria a few weeks ago.
Taken through a window on a stair well, so please forgive the glare.
Day 26 of Becky’s June square roof challenge, and she has a dragon for us.
In the Thar desert where the temperature can reach the mid forties, a simple structure providing shade can make a big difference.
I’m sharing for Becky’s June square roof challenge. Just a few days left to post yours!
I’m not sure what time it is up on the roof!
Perhaps it will be two minutes to something forever.
Becky’s found a mural of rooftops in Lisbon, is it tiles or a painting of tiles?
Becky’s June square challenge continues, in Lisbon.I had a bit of a dilemma with my photo because it fits Paula’s challenge too. You’ll see what I decided to do tomorrow.
I took the photo somewhere in the region of Monti Sartorius, Sant’Alfio in the Mount Etna National Park. Etna erupted several times between 2011-2012, this was June 2013 and there was plenty of evidence of damage. No one has ever died as a result of an eruption.
I rather like this photo because of all the shapes, there were even more before I cropped it square.
I’m sure a couple of people will recognise the scene, but it’s for Becky’s June square roofs challenge.
Taken from an even higher place, the Kuala Lumpur Tower.
AS this was ten years ago, I expect that a few more high roof tops have been added since. Here’s Becky’s Bug Hotel, she’d be delighted if you joined in.
Glimpses of Florentine roofs from the Palazzo Vecchio.
See what Becky’s been up to here. We’re half way through the challenge already, but I’ve only managed a few.
Becky’s created a square challenge again for June, this time it’s square roofs or rooves as some say. A few years ago a very clever friend proof read something for me. She said I should change my roofs to rooves and then I was corrected by my writing tutor who said it should be roofs!
My roofs today, complete with funicular, are in Bergamot northern Italy.
Looking down from the Citta Alta towards the new town.
Becky’s choice today is very clever!
Flying into Heathrow on Tuesday, I asked the pilot if he could oblige by popping down via a certain little home. Anyone recognise it? 🙂
Becky’s having another square month, with the
theme of roofs or rooves this time, perhaps you’re joining in?
Yet again, I’m all behind, hopefully I’ll catch up a bit at the weekend.
