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 is ROOFS (or rooves if you prefer!). 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.
