More subtle reflections, this one in the window of ArtParade, the art shop and gallery at the corner of Albert Terrace and Victoria Road. I am not quite sure how it is possible (miraculous diffractions of light) but the reflection is of the New Mill chimney at the bottom of Victoria Road.
Normally you would not see the shop window looking like this, with one blind down and the other up, so that is what made it interesting to me. (Every cloud has a silver lining...) Sadly, the shop appears to have become a victim to the incessant rain. Water must have been leaking in above the window. They had had to put buckets and towels along the window sill to catch the water and strip away some of the window surround - to see where the leak was coming from, I assume. Leaks tend to be difficult to trace in these old buildings, as I know to my cost!
