High Vantage Point

Used to be, roofs didn’t have ornaments but practical structures (discounting churches and the like). This metal contraption was to help storks to build a nest on the ancient tower. It has not been in use for many years as the storks have decided to roost rather closer to the meadows and fields where frogs and mice can be found.

When decorative turrets for ordinary houses came in fashion, they were mostly modelled on the cockerels of old. These days they are often made of terracotta and not metal as of old.

Lately, I’ve seen horses and – dragons! I love the dragons.

There is always the natural option, I supposed, in black or white.
