You all were very thorough with your guesses, Wow! But nobody has gotten it yet. Maybe another clue? Nahh.
Here is my neighbor Buck Pollard scampering up the roof to work on the chimney.
Do you know now?
I took the photo in the previous post from inside the studio looking up through the stainless steel chimney liner! It was quite a kaleidoscopic vision. I had to get a picture of it before everything was sealed up. What looks to me like a fancy tire rim on a low rider is actually the rain cap on top of the chimney reflecting on the inside of the chimney. The beautiful blue sky provided the light!
Here are Buck and the chimney later in the afternoon, just before it began to snow.
