Theme Thursday -- Roofs

Welcome to this week's Theme Thursday. I would like to thank all the folks over at TT for choosing one of my suggestions for this week's theme. I can't begin to explain my fascination with roof's. It only started a few years ago when I moved to my current town. I noticed the town had more types of roofs in a broader expanse of materials and colors than anywhere else I had lived. I questioned whether it was the roofs I like or the building themselves? It must be the roofs because I come home with more shots of roofs without the buildings than I do with the complete structure.

I started out to expound on the many different types, materials and colors and decided my post was extreme over kill. So I tossed the whole post and settled on just these 10 shots. Each is unique either for color or material. Shelter is a fundamental need whether it is a primitive tepee or an expensive expanse of Spanish tile. I hope the variety of shelter I have captured is as interesting for you as it is for me. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

  6. Another nice collection! Lots of metal roofs out west, yes. I like that old barn pic, as well. Nice job, Rita :)

  7. Rita: The connection to roofs was in this paragraph:

    I read the search engine hits and learn that Alfred E. Neuman is MAD magazine's "What -- Me Worry?" kid. He's a young man with a thatched roof of red hair, large ears and a gap-toothed, goofy-grin.

    Albiet, a bit obscure. Happy TT.

  8. The last pic is my favorite:)
