Today’s 365 is from 2009. It’s quite handy that I did a project 365 in 2009, as there are images from every day; helpful when I find that I didn’t shoot on that particular date in any other year I have on file. But still, I have to come up with a new image, or a re-edit at least. Some days when I did my first 365, I struggled to find one image worth downloading. Luckily, on 8th January I went for a stroll along my local waterway, the Wey Navigation, and took several pictures. Here’s one I hadn’t processed until now. It is a fitting image to choose in the context of a project that involves revisiting the past; the building reflected in this picture is a modern apartment block built as a pastiche to echo the Victorian mill that used to stand here. The original building could not be renovated as it burned down in 1963, in the last of many fires on this site (the perils of milling seed oil).
Echoes of times past
