Looking skywards


I've shown these thinking pods before, but with this view from underneath, you get a better view of the crowstep gable effect at the bottom of each pod. The crowstep gable style came to Scotland by way of the Netherlands and can be seen in many Scottish houses, particularly buildings along the Royal Mile from around the 16th-17th century.
