The Roofmaker's Art

Posted by
GJC (Kyoto, Japan) on 22 October 2010 in Architecture.

I simply cannot resist pictures like this, even though I have taken a million of them. These tile roofs are bewitching. (And that little red leaf just was too charming!) You can see a similar roof theme here.

Something about your architecture that makes shots like this so successful . . colors, textures, light, form !

I discover your space photo, and the serenity reigns to see Japan there so, it is soft...
And thank you for your passages by to me...
Cross a good end of the week;-)

There is a wonderful pattern that is created by these tile roofs that are most calming! You have captured this one beautifully GJC! Well done! ;-)
