Suspended from a Spire

This relatively small suspension bridge in Swansea does not look so small as it sticks out like a spire amongst the buildings around.

An Alternative Viewpoint

Last weekend I went on a art walk with Sarah Abbott from the Mission Gallery in Swansea. We went down to the dunes at the eastern end of Swansea Bay with sketch books and cameras, etc.

Sometimes the places you know best are those that are hardest to “see”. I have done a fair amount of photography in the bay but I have not produced a StillWalks video there. Taking a look at a place with someone else can be helpful in that the interaction of perception can prompt a fresh way of seeing the familiar.

Lighting Architecture

Windsor station is in there somewhere but the roof architecture and lighting you see below is in fact a shopping centre and cafe complex built within the old station layout. It is a great place and I loved the atmosphere.

Even on a dreary day there are plenty of visitors to Windsor and Windsor Castle. It was, of course, the last week of August, so perhaps that is to be expected!
