A day or two ago I suddenly noticed that all of my roof shots had blue skies, and I thought to myself that is not a true reflection of my life! There are many days when I am peering at roofs through cloud and rain, even when in the Algarve.

Earlier this year the forecast promised less than 5mm of rain over the whole day, so we decided to risk the grey and head out for a walk. On arriving in Foz de Odeleite the heavens opened, so we never got our walk in. However the friend who had joined us encouraged us to at least explore the abandoned house and its bread oven before we returned to her village for lunch. And I am so glad she did as it has meant today I have a rather unusual roof to share today.

If you have only just joined me and wondering why I am glad about a roof, well we are nine days in to this month’s Squares. A daily photo challenge where the main photograph has to be square. And this month the theme isΒ ROOFSΒ (or rooves if you prefer!).Β Your roof can be;

  • any type, any condition, any size, and in any location.
  • it could be a shot across rooftops, of one roof or even a macro
  • you might prefer to spend some time under the eaves and in the attic, or like me a few months get wet by photographing a roof with a view!

  1. We are going shooting today so maybe I will find some rooves to shoot! I’m STILL trying to figure out how to make steeple a square picture!

    We’ve had SO much rain. The roof I love best is the one right above me. It keeps us DRY.

    1. Hee hee I did enjoy your skew-whiff format, just hilarious I moved my head!!!

      Glad you like the shots. At one point I thought the camera was going to get washed away. It was raining so hard!

  2. I do like blue skies. I know they say photos on a cloudy day are good but I took some flowers the other day and they look dull will a flat grey sky.

    1. It’s a wonderful corner of the Algarve. Our favourite place to begin hikes as there are so many variations and always plenty to see.


  3. Fascinating even in the rain – this should come near the top of the “unusual roof” category this month πŸ™‚
    I hope you have a good weekend Becky, with at least a few moments of relaxation

    1. Ooh now there’s a thought for the next collation. Maybe I should theme?! There again……just looked at diary….might be a tad too much!


      1. The problem is that I don’t land in Leeds till 10pm so Mick is coming down early. They’ll put Logan to bed then scram to Hartlepool. I’ll hopefully catch the airport bus and their flat is quite central. We’re supposed to be having a farewell meal with the family from Canada tomorrow. They fly home Monday. Complicated life xx

      2. Glad you made the last bus! Otherwise an expensive taxi ride… back home now? Or meeting the Canadian branch of the family? Your life is never dull is it!
