Welcome to the Headbangers Challenge.
This weeks choice comes from Lew - Rooftop Views.

My song this week is  - Up on the Roof, sung by The Drifters.

Rooftops? my 1st thought was Rooftops from my travels, be it in the UK or across the oceans, as I checked  out my photos, every time I was drawn back to our favourite place - St Ives - Cornwall.

So -- Let me show you some of the wonderful rooftops of the some of the oldest buildings from  Fishermen Cottages to Churches of these lovely-romantiic Roof Tops.

My Header
St Ives Rooftops at Night.






You can see why we love this place --

Now -= how about some Rooftop Close-ups
Where we can see the colour of these old roofs and the zigzag shapes and sizes

Are you ready for this?
 Romance blooms on the rooftops
 2  Blackbirds - comes -a-courting


 Look here - Chimney Pots and Roofs cracked and covered in Lichen

Well, what did you expect - Washing hanging out from the Rooftops.

Hope you have enjoyed my Rooftops  - now please go to my side bar - near my shield and visit the other Headbangers and see their take on Lews Theme of Rooftop views.

GOOD LUCK

Always a treat to see things from your perspective, Imac! You bring "the wow factor" to your pics over and over and over again! Now climb down from there before we have to call the Fire Department!

You have a lovely collection of rooftop images.
And I certainly didn't expect the last picture, very difficult to imagine a clothesline on a rooftop :)
