Neighbour's Roof

Just messing around with my camera the other day, not a lot to say about this kind of shot really... except, perhaps, "I like the blue". Didn't do a lot of post-processing here at all, cropped it a little bit. Those tiles really are quite blue.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

Bronnie from Christchurch, New Zealand

Yup, they're blue. Very blue. Cool though!

@Bronnie: Yeah, they are blue.

dYe from Cambridge, United States

You're right, there's not much to say except "great color!" and "wow, they really are blue!" Nonetheless, I just wanted to tell you I like the shot very much.

@dYe: Cheers dYe!

Sylvia from Milano, Italy

Very nice, I too, love blue-- but the effect is interesting because it's almost like super-symmetrical waves, or something done as an illustration in photo shop-- I know they are tiles, but they also could be ___.

@Sylvia: Thanks Sylvia. There is a hypnotic quality to those tiles. In real life too. I often find myself just going out on the balcony and staring at them...

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

I love this one. Besides being very appealling in its own right, this sort of shot makes a splendid desktop wallpaper.

Aidan from Seoul, South Korea

great shot and angle. The glazed roofs that you see in Asia can be really attractive in the right light. I remember being amazed by the golden-yellow colour of the roofs in Hue, Vietnam. Absolutely beautiful.

4 Mar 2007 3:31am

@Aidan: The glaze does have some interesting patterns and that kind of roof always makes for an interesting shot!
