Mingle With the Shingles

Hello My Betty People!

I figured after such a wordy post last time, I owed you some downtime.

Lately, I've been fascinated with shingles and the patterns they form.

(It doesn't take much to fascinate Betty.)







Thanks for stopping by!

Hope you have a great Friday!

And here I was thinking you were going to post close-up snaps of ChickenPox! LOL Happy Friday! :o)

Catherine said...

Very fun! There is design in life where ever we are ~ sometimes we just have to look for it! :)

Happy Weekend Friend!

The fourth one down needs a new roof!

Oh Sew Good said...

Whew! What a relief! With your post yesterday on sneezing, I automatically assumed you were talking about the "disease" Shingles. I couldn't imagine what you were going to say. I was prepared for something zany that's for sure. Isn't it funny the sites we take for granted soon become works of art when we take the time to really look. :)

Such interesting patterns and textures. Well captured.

Madi and Mom said...

Morning BB...we just love how you find beauty in the simplest thing!!!
If you stare at the shingles long enough they do start to form patterns!! Happy Friday and weekend,
Hugs Madi and Mom

Parsley said...

Having recently had 'the shingles' I thought you were going to post gross pictures of blistery rashes! BOL

Joe Cap said...

At first I thought the same thing as Parsley...
Them thar curly-cue ones are in need of some serious repair...maybe crows are messing with it?

Jennifer Shirk said...

Cool shingles. MUCH better than the "other" kind too. LOL

Nat said...

Wow! Who knew shingles could be so attractive :)

Gaston Studio said...

Fabulous study Betty. Love the Spanish tile ones!

Hilary said...

So kind of you Betty to climb up there and take such cool photos. ;) And kinder still that you didn't snap shots of a skin eruption.

Brian said...

They sure do have different looks to them. Have a wonderful weekend!

HulaBuns said...

My In-Laws just replaced their roof. Needless to say the hubs and I have been hearing A LOT about roofs lately. LOL

I hope the 4th roof doesn't have anyone under it, seems like that could get messy.

It doesn't take much to fascinate me either, so we are definitely on the same page there! Thanks for the fun post. Have a great weekend!

Cricket said...

Lots of great texture in these, and an interesting choice of subject. It's all in the framing, right? You put a frame around something and will it to be art.

As others have said, #4 is crying out for some attention. Yikes.

My mind went to the other kind of shingles and the patterns they form. I'm glad your mind is much healthier. Happy Friday and weekend. xo

Baby Sister said...

Those are awesome pictures. I loved them, as always. Thanks Betty. :)

Pearl said...

Our shingles were pulled off in the last wind storm -- new ones coming in the spring!

Yay! I'm excited about shingles, too!

:-D

I too had a thing for shingles until my mother-n-law came down with 'em for a bit. Happy Friday!

Aging Mommy said...

Love the roof with the peeling back slates and that last photo is fabulous. Only you Betty can see the magic and marvelous in just about everything.

Tracy said...

My Betty, your friends have so much faith in you..thinking you'd post something as disgusting as shingles the disease!

..beautiful photos...

Old Kitty said...

Oh BB!! I thought for one moment you were suffering from a bout of shingles!! Awwww!!! I had shingles a few years back and it was not fun at all!!

So I'm so glad to see you meant roof shingles!! Yay!!!!

Amazing pics as always - you find beauty in structure and form! Take care

Ann said...

I've been a little obsessed with shingles lately. But only because I need a new roof on my house :)

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Like you, I am fascinated by things most people ignore. Love these shots and I also like picturing the homes that blend with the shingles.

ds said...

Cool! I love the ones that are curling up. Really creative idea--thank you.

baygirl32 said...

Oh boy, someone needs a new roof! great shots Betty

faye said...

Okay what gives with your
obsession about roofs...

shingles...always looking up , eh ??

Jimmy said...

You just have to love that "Wind Blown" look on some of them, it's amazing the different patterns all around us that we miss each day.

Marlene said...

Oh my....those curly shingles don't look too healthy!

Daisy said...

Cool designs and rhythms there. It's amazing what you can see if you really take the time to look around, isn't it. Happy weekend to you, Betty! :)

Cheeseboy said...

I thought you were talking about shingles the disease. Thank goodness you were not.

DrSoosie said...

I myself have a certain fascination with shingles. I love ones that are varied in color. It adds such a neat kind of texture to the roofline. Very nice pics!

Keats The Sunshine Girl said...

Cool pictures. Thanks for getting to the roof top. LOL

Lin said...

Spot the photo where somebody has a big job up ahead!!! ;)
