Weekly Photo Challenge: On Top ( of Roofs)

Still fascinated by what I saw on roof tops, be it in the West or in the East.

Time is running out for this week’s WPC challenge, but at least, I would like to share the follow examples.CIMG2799

A ship juts out from the top of the building in Chong Qing, overlooking the Yangtze River, with a mix of old and new underneath – old houses with tiles, contemporary bridge across the river and further away, high rises.

Are they just fascinating?

    • I think different cultures have different preference for putting different objects on the roof. They have snow in Beijing, the first one, no snow in Chongqing, the boat, snow in the Baltics and no snowin Dubrovnik (third one).

  1. Fascinating, indeed! Such a fanciful idea, to have guardians marshalling the sky. Now i think of dragons and setting off in an ‘air-boat’ and just love the idea of meeting up with that black cat – symbolism of luck. πŸ™‚ Love this whimsical post πŸ™‚

  2. I am often so jealous of the beautiful places you visit.
    So many bloggers live in such magnificent places. I wish I could travel everywhere and go for long photographic safari walks with my blog friends.
    Thanks for the photos and allowing me to see more of the our wonderful world.
    Blessings, Phyllis
