It's interesting, isn't it, how we all 'see' different things? Take any two photographers and put them in the same place at the same time and, the chances are, each will interpret the scene quite differently. I think that's half the fun of blogging, to see what others see through different eyes from our own. I've a close friend who is not 'a photographer' but she is one of my greatest encouragers as regards this blog. We were looking round the Festival at the weekend and it was she who pointed out this view, as we were descending the stairs in the Victoria Hall. I hadn't particularly noticed it but now I look and see, it strikes me as very typical of Saltaire, and sort of endearing because of that. It says 'home' to me. I suppose in some senses it could be any one of a number of northern towns - or does it say 'Saltaire' (slate roofs, honey-coloured stone) to other people? I'd be interested to know.
I haven't done anything to the photo apart from crop it slightly so it's odd to see how one pane of the old glass changes the colour of the sky.
