Weekly Photo Challenge: up

Up on the rooftops, Amsterdam

When traveling, I love to take photos of rooftops at roof level, to see the different ways the rooflines poke into the sky. I took this in 2009 in Amsterdam, when were were staying in a three-story canal house as part of a home exchange, and I climbed to the home’s top floor to capture this image. What I love about these photos is the detail that is often revealed on a closer, later look, details that I didn’t necessarily take into account when I was composing (and I use that word loosely) the photo — the church spires, the chairs, oriented toward the view, in the covered deck, and my favorite detail, the Buddha heads peeking out of the chimney.
