Serendipity: Hellerup Havn

Posted by
sithenah (Greater Manchester/Cheshire, United Kingdom) on 9 February 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

On a coach tour of Copenhagen, I was taking pictures through the bus window. I took this one of the road-sign to Hellerup Havn and the surrounding street furniture. It wasn't until much later when I downloaded the picture onto my computer, that I discovered I'd also photographed the opposite side of the road as reflected in the window.

Really looks like kind of ghost-appearance, I was wondering how the reflection was made because you see nowhere signs of a shop window or anything, but you told it was taken from a bus, I would never have guessed it. The girl is attractive and her reddish hair is easily associated with Viking legends from a far past...

Reflections like this can really make a shot . . I like how the two 'images' fit so well together and beco9me more than the sum of their parts.

Hello Sithenah, this isn't serendipity anymore now I've seen it so many times :D. Looking forward to your new picture, yours sincerely, (see above). BTW Everything well?

@Illuci: Hi Eric -- I've been very busy posting on my other blogs and also some blogs I contribute to including Geograph UK and have neglected this a little - will post more here in a while but maybe not too soon.

One more proof of how both sides of the same street integrate their lives into each other. You should have looked the other way too. The cyclist stands well upon the houses, but would the houses upon a person.
