Just a few more roofs in squares…

It’s July and the 30 day challenge from Becky.  ‘The Life of B’ has ended. But here are some that got away.

And possibly the building with the most magnificent roof of them all.
The Taj-Mahal

Once again a big thank you to Becky for hosting this challenge. I can’t wait to see what idea she has for September. In the meantime I hope she has a chance to put her feet up and relax. And a big thank you to everyone who took time to like and comment on my entries. It has been a fun month 🙂

And in case anyone was wondering which was the most popular of my roofs I had a look at the stats:

The winner is Lisbon on day 14 with 39 likes and 73 views. Ludlow, day 17 and Potting Shed, day 13 both received 61 views, but Prague on day 16 was next with 43 likes and 59 views.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. So glad you didn’t stop, Jude. Are those some Ludlow rooftops in there? Actually this could be quite an addictive pursuit, obsessive compulsive photo squaring. I remember after Becky’s last circles in squares, I wanted to keep on doing them 🙂

    1. I have got very ‘in to’ square formats – i think they train your eye to be more critical on the composition of an image. What to leave out.

  2. Stunning photos, Jude! Loved the collection of the little squares 🙂 It’s fascinating to me how different roofs can be when they all serve the one purpose to provide us with a safe home or a place to be in. That really is a statement for creativity …

    1. Hi Verena. Long time, no see! Hope all is well with you and the painting. Missed you last autumn for the festival of leaves which Dawn kindly hosted.

      1. Thank you so much, Jude! It is, I’m feeling so happy! That was so great of her 🙂 I’ll talk to her if I will do it again this year 😉

  3. So pleased you kept on keeping on with your roofs Jude those VWs look like Dinky toys and yes I agree with your final beautiful Taj Mahal being the most magnificent I can still remember how overwhelmed I was when I stood in front of it

    1. They are indeed toy VW camper vans PP. Aren’t they sweet? I’d like an adult version!! And yes, the Taj certainly has an impact no matter how many photos you have seen of it. When I first saw it in 1973 it was nowhere nearly as crowded as it is now.

  4. Goodness, what happened to the rest of the building in your first photo? You’ve posted some great images for Becky’s challenge, Jude. I wonder what the next theme will be.

    1. That was under the lava ash on Mount Etna. Gilly posted a recent one and I was sure I had one from our visit several years ago – taken from the coach.

        1. Happens fairly regularly so I expect everyone was evacuated in time. Wouldn’t bet on any house insurance though.
