Richmond Roofline 1 - # 09/79

Looking up and taking time to slow down and look all around is always rewarding in Richmond upon Thames. I like the hint of "roof-top apartment" just entering the picture on the left. Why is it that most of us seem to find this an attractive idea: living high up, looking out across the town, in a cosy little place? The grouping of several styles and shapes begged to be photographed.


  1. Nice picture, and you are right, the thought is appealling, possibly more than the actual act of living high up, cramped into a little apartment...... I think it is a power thing, and stems back from the days of surveying your land and being able to see each of your subjects, toiling in the fields below, for your benefit.... the good old days they were too...:)
