What would you wish for, at a wishing well?
When Apollo and I found the wishing well in our wanderings around the Larnach Castle grounds, I was quite taken with it – and wouldn’t you be? While the well itself was now covered (I’d read that a very tipsy party goer had pushed a signal cannon down in about a hundred years earlier, which was rather challenging to retrieve), the sheer romanticism of it grabbed in a way that usually only parasols do. And did I ever wish I had one with me to take photos with! Still, Apollo did a great job of taking a picture of me making a wish, and I determined that I would return later to get me a scavenger hunt photo. Oh yes indeed!
That, of course, provided its own challenges. Because the wishing well is a popular spot, in a popular garden, next to a popular castle. But I am a determined exhibitionist, and I got my shots:
I really am so glad to have my gorilla pod – I ended up hanging my camera upside-down off a branch, and then running back and forth to get this photo (and the two click-throughs). This strikes me as an excellent way to get some exercise!
I brought myself home a Wishing Well bookmark, too. Well, why not? (Click to read the back.)
I totally wanted to take photos in the castle dungeon. Which I didn’t manage, alas!
