Up On The Roof (Again)


My friend Simon has been up on the city’s rooftops art-directing a ‘Visit London’ campaign, and has been getting some cracking shots from angles we don’t normally see. Here’s the Dean of Westminster taking tea on the roof of his gaff, as you probably be tempted to do.

    Fabulous spot for afternoon tiffin! Was the tea still hot by the time they got it up there?!

    Not sure about this location, the roof looks slanted to me. Unless I have been dipping a little too much into the gin today. Froget about cold tea, what I want to know is how did they get the table level? on a personal note, I would be afraid to take a wrong step and slide right off. If it did happened, perhaps some lovely MP who has been taking liberties with their expense account will be kind enough to be right below me at the time to break my fall.

    “Not your usual view” means that you see familiar icons in a different context, which means you can triangulate the sites a little better. Umm, figure out where these places actually are? Hope we see some other shots and kudos to the advertising people for a fresh look at London.

    That image provides more icons per foot of horizon that ought to be permitted by law. The Dean included.

    Regarding the ability to navigate a tilted field in an un-tilted manner: it’s dead boring, but they create a wedge-shaped platform that’s thick-enough on one end to make-up for the roof’s angle, much like one creates stairs down an angle. Where the platform isn’t, they line the roof surface with rubber mats to walk on so that the people working up there don’t slip or fall, and when rubber mats aren’t available they paint the roof surface with dried blood of MPs which is quite tacky about an hour after application.

    Re: Untilted VS tilted rooftops – I’m worrying that you all have too much time on your hands.
