Places


Aberglasney

Aberglasney is undoubtedly one of the finest gardens in Wales and a place I love to go for some tranquility, a nice cup of tea and the opportunity to take photographs of the wide range of plants and flowers.

Bristol

A wonderful city with much to offer the photographer, from the vibrant waterfront area to the street art and culture of Stokes Croft.

Cardiff

A wonderful city with much to offer the photographer, from the vibrant waterfront area to the street art and culture of Stokes Croft.

The Carmarthen Fleamarket

Another of my favourite haunts which always seems to provide me with something bizarre to photograph. The event is held regularly on a Sunday at the Carmarthen Showground site on the outskirts of the town.

The Cwmdu Motorcycle Show

A modest selection of images from the Cwmdu Motorcycle Show held in the village in 2016.

Folly Farm

Folly Farm is a place I had not visited for many years since my children were young. The farm has much to offer from the most endearing meerkat family to the vintage funfair rides, with some giraffes and other exotic wildlife along the way.

Fortress Wales

The first Fortress Wales event I attended was held in the splendid grounds of Margam Park. Subsequently, the event moved to Caldicot Castle and continued to provide me and many other photographers with some wonderful photo opportunities. Sadly, the event was not held in 2017. I do hope that the organisers are able to resume this excellent event in the future.

The Porthcawl Elvis Festival 2017

What a hilarious day out! This was the first time I had visited the Elvis Festival in Porthcawl having heard and read so much about it over the years. My thanks to all the good sports who posed for photographs.

Oxfordshire

Now that I have family residing in Oxfordshire, I find myself visiting the most wonderful locations in the Cotswolds and beyond. From the wonderful buildings in Oxford to the many charming villages dotted around the county, Oxfordshire has a great deal to satisfy the photographer.

Sweden Roadtrip [2016]

At the beginning of September 2016, I found myself travelling from Denmark by car to the city of Umeå in the north of Sweden for a friend's wedding. These are a few of the photographs taken along the long journey north.

The Welsh Game Fair

Another event which has sadly ceased. From the event's days in the wonderful Golden Grove location, to the following years in Carmarthen and then Pembrey Country Park this event gave many a great deal of pleasure.
