Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Roofs


Roofs from the Archives

Here are a few interesting roofs I found in my photo archives. The first four are from our cruise holiday last year. I like the onion dome roofs of the Mosque. This was in Kuala Lumpur. Also in KL but not such an attractive site were the broken glass panels at the former main railway station. I had been looking forward to seeing this building for a long time and was disappointed to find it in the middle of renovations and looking very run down. The next one is the famous Marina Bay Sands Hotel which has a roof that resembles a ship. The last one which I’ve shown before is the so-called “Durian” building in Singapore.

Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, better known as The Durian in Singapore.

Another unusual roof, this time in Auckland.

We had a roof that looks like a ship now here is a roof on a ship. This was the roof from the old Brooke Street Pier building. It was brought down to Franklin and sat between the Wooden Boat Centre and the Living Boat Trust buildings for some time. I believe the timber was to be used as part of the Cartela restoration but not really sure.

Last an old rusty roof on an abandoned shed near Cygnet.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
