Roof tiles

Came across these carefully stacked roof tiles in a town not far away. They're waiting to be put back on the roof of a house that's having some repair done. I like it when people make an attempt to keep the original building materials on old houses, insofar as possible. Thrifty and pretty at the same time.

Marie-Noyale/Yudhie,

I took this photo in another town, and if I go back reasonably soon, I'll take a photo of the finished roof! :<)

It's such a texture filed and touchable shot Bibi! Did you watch Eurovison last night?
