Could have posted this one for Ailsa’s ‘Pink’ Travel Theme, but not sufficient pink, I thought….

This one is from a trip to France some years ago, and was taken in Colmar, Alsace, where there are some lovely roofscapes and old medieval buildings. Waiting or watching?

Waiting or watching? Colmar, Alsace

    Watching I think. Like you I love rooftops but it hard to get a good photo of them.

    • Totally agree….many times the composition isn’t right, or the light all wrong etc etc….I have frequently been frustrated by my inability to capture what I feel….

  2. Definitely watching – it’s in the body language 🙂 And definitely enough pink! Love the roof too…

    • Ah well, a missed pink trick… I agree re watching, but I have another image some minutes later where she is joined by someone else…. That roof is marvellous, I agree.

    Those roofscapes are gorgeous indeed Sue. Great shot! 😀

  5. Nice shot. An amazing looking building.

  6. My vote would be for watching, I also think this would have worked for pink if you had wanted it to.

  7. I think she’s about to throw herself off…
    Someone’s just told her that her tiles need re-pointing.

  8. Have some fantastic memories from Colmar …. and but I also became violent ill after picking and eating grapes from the wine yard that was in the middle of the town.

    • That sounds dodgy…

      • I tell you, I thought I was going to die … we had an expensive meal on this fantastic star restaurant and first I thought it was the food .. there, thank god I didn’t say anything .. then I remember the grape I had eaten when we went for a walk in town .. the was of course sprayed with insecticides.

  9. Fabullous roof and colours! Pink enough for me.
