#RoofSquares 1: Amsterdam edition

Becky at The Life of B likes a square go, oops, I mean a square challenge. I’ve never joined in before, but the theme for June intrigues me: Roofs. If you want to join in too, tag your post #RoofSquares and link to Becky’s post each day. You can also see what other people are posting in the comments. Interpret the theme as you please: the only rule is that your main image must be square.

I don’t have time to post daily, so I’m going to post every Friday instead. The roof detail above is from the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. The building in its full, non-square, glory is below.

    Hi Anabel 🙂
    Sorry, I know I’ve quite disappeared. It’s been quite an hectic first hal of the year and I’m not sure it has settled down yet. But I’m trying to get back into the swing of things.

    Hey, I like the idea of this challenge. Such an unusual one.
    And I like your first photo. Quite a stately building.

    I like your composition of the square photo. It really shows of the details well.

      Thanks, I like that one too. It wasn’t taken as a square, like most of the later ones, as I didn’t know the challenge was coming up, but it cropped well.

    I’ve often wondered about buildings like this one that have so much visual interest around the top of the building … but it can’t really be appreciated from the ground for the craftsmanship that it is. At least with our zoom lens and digital images, we can focus in on some of it now.

      That’s very true! I often think that about medieval cathedrals that have the most amazing details so high up that no one would see them. I suppose a) satisfaction in doing a good job and b) in the cathedral case it would be for God to look at!
