CFFC – Week 2 Photo

I photographed this mural in Narberth, in Wales. It is created from individual tiles, and is so bright and colourful. It was made by artist Ben Lloyd, and local children. It seemed a good choice for Cee’s fun foto challenge this week.

 

Danger! – Weekly photo challenge

We saw these solar panel fields in Wales a couple of years ago.  The panels are placed in such a way that sheep can still graze beneath them. Of course keeping potential vandals out is an issue, and the fields are surrounded by high fencing and are monitored by security cameras. “Danger of Death” seemed quite a foreboding sign!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge – Symbol

On a recent family trip to South Wales in the UK, we spent an enjoyable afternoon with friends at the Gwilli Steam Railway. The steam trains are symbols of the past and have been lovingly restored by dedicated volunteers. But the Welsh dragon, an important symbol of Wales, was also much in evidence on the train we rode.
