June Roof: Anyone for Tennis?

This tennis court in the sky is very near where I work in downtown Sydney — in fact, I took the photo from the 15th floor of my office building. I’ve never seen anyone actually playing tennis here, but the entire court was recently substantially refurbished, so it must get used sometime. Despite that netting, I can’t help but imagine balls falling on the heads of unsuspecting pedestrians below!

June Roof: Here be Dragons

Dragon on a roof

Here’s a handsome devil! Well, dragon really, not devil. Peering down from his perch on a roof in … where? Looks Chinese, doesn’t he? Certainly not very Aussie, strewth! Yet I spotted him in Ettalong, north of Sydney.

June Roof: Stone

Castle Combe "The Prettiest Village In England"

Castle Combe “The Prettiest Village In England”

Back to England for this photo. An old photo (1998), which explains the fuzzy focus. You can nonetheless make out those marvellously steep roofs/rooves clad with what look like slabs of stone. These are seriously sturdy buildings. This Cotswolds town is known as “The Prettiest Village In England” but I suspect that’s self-proclaimed. 😉

June Roof: Patterns in tiles

Museum of Military History, Budapest (I think).

Museum of Military History (Maybe. Possibly.) in Budapest (Definitely).

I’m a bit vague about what this building is. My photo is named “rooftops castle.jpg”, very helpful (not!), but when I tried to confirm online that it is the castle, well, it looks nothing like the castle! Then I added “roof” to my search and countless images of the St Matthias church and its amazing tiling appeared — but, sadly, they don’t match this tile pattern (and you’ll notice there are no crosses at the top of this building). But it does seem to match the Museum of Military History.
All I can say for certain is that this is a building in Budapest and it has an amazing roof.
@Becky, this is like your quest to identify the Greenwich Foot Tunnel!
