hazardous ripples

This weeks theme is 'ripples'. The ripples I see most often - apart from watery ones - are those of my neighbours very old asbestos roofing. I'm not looking forward to the day when they have to be disturbed:

ooh. He would not be able to sell that house here in the States. He would have to have it removed before hand. It does look very ripply though.

Tho kinda a yucky lookin' roof...it's an excellent photo for this week!

I tried to think of something that was 'different' other than water...

So, HERE is mine The Ripple Effect.

Asbestos roofing?! I have never heard of it, and here I thought I'd heard of it all! Must be quite rare? Many houses in New York State have that ugly asbestos siding. :-p Why did they ever make that junk?

Mine is up! I hope you have a chance to visit.

Have a great weekend!

very creative picture of ripples. I think I'd feel just like you about the day when that has to come down.

And well caked in mosses too! A very interesting effect.

Scary ripples! And I do understand you are worried. But it made a great shot though!

Thanks for nice visitis while I was away. I have been in Sweeden, so the last shots from the corn field was from Sweeden.

Well, I didn't think there was anything yucky about this roof. The moss growing in the ripples made a very interesting texture. I am glad that I am not responsible for removing that roof, though! Great ripples, and a very different take on the theme.

Looks great, but run away and take a long vacation when they take those apart - danger!

we don't use asbestos as roofing here in the philippines so..

It might be ugly and dangerous but makes a great subject for ripples.

I love your hay-making photos too.
