OOooo a classic!

This is extraordinary nice Jeff !

Lovely sky, perfect reflection. Quite surreal in fact.

My late father-in-law worked there for about 150 years when they made the cardboard tubes for cotton spinning. Now it's a papier-mache producer.

Perfectly framed Jeff..These old factory buildings from the Great Britain period are quite photogenic, add in a nice reflection and walah..This is a great result....

It reminds me of the smithy's forge where I worked as a child refugee in Herbert Morris's satanic mills..The grand Union Canal ran conveniently ideal solution to the tons of reject chain hooks that the Blacksmiths cocked up..I often wonder if they ever dredged that canal...

Thanks Jim. That's why I love having a dog, getting out and about with her (in extreme cases along with the wife)and falling across unexpected views like this.
