London Rooftops by *Raphael-Lacoste is absolutely amazing. The amount of detail coupled with the way the light dances off the tops of the buildings is a rare treat for the eyes! ( Suggested by ShittyValentine and Featured by cosmosue )

I like this. It kind of looks like a setting for the "Thief" reboot. Very cool.

"Chim Chimney, chim chimney chim chim chim Cherie, I likes what I like and I like what I see." The old man sung as he sat on the rim of the dirty roof top. He used to know every chimney in the city of London and moved like his legs were rubber. awaited him in by the another smoke stack as he gazed out into the night.

 

He felt a breeze, more of a presence , he hadn't felt it in years.

 

"Winds in the east, Mist coming in"

"Like something is brewin, about to begin,"

"Cant put me finger, on what is in store."

"But I got a feeling this had all happened before"

 

He heard footsteps landing behind him as a young  woman holding her umbrella and carpet bag stood behind him. "Hello again, Bert"

 

"Lovely as ever, Mary Poppins."

A very iconic picture. The crowded nature of London typified by the many roofs close together. Detail is fantastic.

Hi there! My name is Becky and I am the administrative assistant at Berkshire Dance Theatre in Adams, MA, USA. We are a non-profit organization and our end of the year production is just around the corner. This year, our theme is based around the idea that artwork comes alive. This being said, I saw this image and was truly inspired. I am writing to you to ask permission to use this image at no cost. The image will be projected behind the dancers as they move and you will be credited in our program! If you could please respond at your earliest convenience, that will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your consideration in this regard!

-Becky

Wow! I love all your work & will be ordering some
prints soon on canvas. But this is pure nostalgia
for me. I lived in London for 10 years. Four years
in an old Victorian walk up in Swiss Cottage where I
rented a room on the top floor. There was a window
that went out to the roof & I'd sit up there for hours,
mostly at night & have a view similar to this. It was
pure magic. PLEASE, OH PLEASE offer this as a print!
I'm sure so many of us would be so grateful if you would.
Looking forward to seeing what else you create! I equally
appreciate your wonderful photography. Thanks so much
for sharing your work.
