Window – WPhotoC

I’m rather late with this week’s challenge but does it really matter? This is another photo taken last Saturday at the site of the old Pigeon House Hotel. The wall could only have been part of the fortifications built in the late 17th century. The opening was most definitely too small to be a doorway but it was likely an opening for a cannon barrel… I think.

Window into a view of the past and the now...  a glimpse through old stone wall at a ferry and speed boat in Dublin's harbour area...

What I really enjoy about the photo is the contrast between old and new… and also the ferry’s reflection. See how lucky I was with the timing… the reflection line runs almost perfectly into the shadow line… as if the reflection wants to extend out through the opening…

Oh, then there’s the speed boat just joining in… just for the fun… serendipity, she’s such a lady of convenience!
