070411.Bathwick, Light at the End of the Tunnel 2

April 11, 2007 at 2:26 PM | Posted in Bath, Bathwick, Bridges, Canals, Light and Shadow, Mansion, Reflection, somerset | 5 Comments

This is the 201st post! JC’s been kind enough to post 25 of them for me while I’ve been away at various times. (And you’ll notice, she always posts at exact intervals, pretty impressive.) I should have done something big for yesterday’s post. Oh well, I’ll wait for the 238th post spectacular. 070226.034.Somset.Bathwick.ClevelandHus.Kennet&AvonCanal
Someone please explain exactly how this happens and why it is so great. Come one, any mathematicians out there, surfing the net, killing time, itching to do something completely irrelevant? You know you want to explain the properties of light refraction on nearly still water.

“So here we are, Mr. Pilgrim, trapped in the amber of the moment. There is no why.”

“All time is all time. It does not change. It does not lend itself to warnings or explanations. It simply is. Take it moment by moment, and you find that we are all, as I’ve said before, bugs in amber.”-Vonnegut

This is under Cleveland House on the Kennet and Avon Canal

  1. Wow, this is really beautiful James.
    Congrats on 201.

  2. This is a stunning shot. The reflection of light on the wall looks like feathers. And the framing is superb.

  3. “Exact intervals?” I’m not seeing it.

    I CAN’T WAIT FOR 238!!! oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy

  4. i would love to explain, but i am far too busy as i am sure one can imagine. beaut shot dude features

  5. it is fascinating – and i love the reflections on the tunnel ceiling too. (do tunnels have a ceiling?) (if anyone would know, you would)

    If you don’t want to take your blog for a day out, you could do a guest post on mind, if you want to. Be my guest. :o)
