Mysterious Happening On King's Parade

Strolling along King's Parade in Cambridge
when I caught a glimpse,
a fleeting flash,
of a strange, alien street
oddly familiar.
I turned back and peered at
a window,
a reflection,
a dreamscape.

I don't know what's going on here and I can't work out how many images are
 superimposed on one another. What you see above is a straight photo with just a little sharpening and cropping. Just goes to show there's nothing as bizarre as reality.

Take care.


  1. ...some special effects? The photo taken through a window? Whatever, I like your leadup and the image is fun

  2. A fleeting glimpse of Diagon Alley, perhaps?

    (Nice image!)

  3. I would like to think it's Diagon Alley.

  4. Excellent, John. Sometimes I see something that I can't explain, and the only things to do are to enjoy it and take out the camera . . .

  5. I like the Diagon Alley theory:)

  6. That is amazing and somehow quite beautiful! I too like the idea of Diagon Alley:)

  7. Uncanny but a marvellous image John and proof, I suppose, that the camera does lie.

  8. Hmmmm, something messing about with reality, - stirs the imagination!

  9. No special effects other than the mysteries created by reflections from multiple windows. Thanks for your reflections!!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I'll try to answer any questions via a comment or e-mail within the next day or two (no hard questions, please!).
