As I have previously mentioned I went to the quarry in North Wales. this was one of the themes I was thinking about while I was up there. the building look over 100 years old. it’s at the end of a track at the back of Llanfafirfechan but actually entrance to the modern quarry is from Penmaenmawr. It felt strange up there. I would not sat ghostly but unloved. Walking time has had little influence on the grass path ways. I really liked the views of anglesey from up there. It was nice to see the Great Orme in Llandudno and puffin island off pen mon in detail rather than speeding past them out of a window on the A55 on a train or in a car. One of Conwy little gems just off the Welsh coastal path

Although they where dilapidated in place the rocks looked like they had been placed on the floor in order

I for the last years have been in Paris at this time of the year for Paris photo which was  in the carousel below Louvre. It has now moved over to the Grand Palais, Avenue Winston Churchill in West Paris. I’ve spent so much time walking around paris I can find my way around it pretty much without a map. It’s such a beautiful place. I’ve only been there in the autumn I kind of worry what it will look like in the summer. I Love the place

I miss you

I’m dull because where i am is dull

Too which a sort out was on and all inspiration gone

No seine left me sad

Toffee Eclairs beige pants and hat

only in Saint Germain can you do that

the tower base, leave me happiest were its flat

inspiration flows creativity

Take time to shoot the right line

The winter leaves make my heart wane

Self certification it wont happen again

So er yes I actually went out with a real camera (Canon 7d digital camera) rather than my Samsung S3 Phone and Instagram  and took some pictures. its been a while but it was fun all the same. I went over to the island of Ynys Mon in Wales and the Britannia bridge that carries the A55. The main trunk road to Ireland from Holyhead. I also got inspired by rocks there was a church in the middle of the irish sea near aberffraw called St Cwyfan Church . You can get to it at low tide.

 

I got some pictures of the stone lions that you can’t see from the road after the old Thomas Telford railway tunnel was burnt down in the 1970s and they put the new road on top. I love the steel structure and the rivets and bolts holding the bridge up
