WPC: Reflecting

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now
From up and down and still somehow
It’s cloud’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know clouds at all…

~ Joni Mitchell

The Pin Mill, Lily Pond Approach at Bodnant Gardens, Conwy

Before being re-erected at Bodnant in the 1930’s, the building was originally put together in 1730 as a picnic house or shooting lodge, or it is thought it may have been used as a garden house. Later, the building was used as a factory for making dressmaking pins with two furnaces for that purpose inside the building.

I now live in the UK, but spent several years travelling and then living in South Africa. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

  1. What a beauty! I might have had to use my old Lunapic trick on this one Jude. Just watched the most scintillating performance from Rafa and Goffin. He’s back! X

  2. Very unlike your usual shots. Such a clear and perfect reflection, and such an odd function! I’d never thought of pins having to be made. The Joni Mitchell quote is perfect. What processing?

    1. Erm… Silver Efex from Nik software, but I can’t remember the exact edit. The sky was completely blown out as I was shooting into the sun and the clouds looked better in the reflection so I figured I’d try the conversion.

  3. Lovely reflection.

    There’s a video on youtube titled, Joni Mitchell Both sides now on Mama Cass Show 1969. To introduce Joni, Mama Cass just says: “This is singing” So true.
