Besides all the loose shingles.
The low pitch shouldn't have shingles if it is 2:12 or less...
And you shouldn't be walking it.

Nobody works on Saturday, that's the day for WVU football!!

There's a few loose shingles on the ridge cap. Other than that, no problem!

The application of wood shake shingles on a low sloped roofing structure (less than 4:12) requires an approved membrane over the roof deck and the shingle exposure should also be reduced.
