The columns in front of the family courts building in the centre of Carmarthen where I have been walking this week, have texture and colour I particularly like. It looks to me as though the texture may not be from the stone that is used but from a surface addition of some sort. It doesn’t really matter to me, I just like it and took several photos. I selected two to post here and debated with myself whether or not to leave the blue of the shop behind the columns in the frame. I found that keeping it in helps both the perspective overall and also the focus on the texture and pattern of the second column.

The open square shown below might suggest that the town was not busy on this day, and indeed that was the sense that I had of the place at the time. However, the photo of Dark Gate and Lammas Street would suggest otherwise as do some of the other shots I took on this walk. I carried on from here through the market but returned later to get a delicious burger with onions and tomato relish!
