The Storming of Cardiff!!

Finally got around to hauling my butt to see Wales play at home on Saturday (Wales v. Italy: 47-8). I’ve been saying I’ll go for years but have only now managed it accompanied by the girls from the office – Thanks for joining me girls, you were great company. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a long time. I got very emotional during the singing of the Anthem but managed to stop short of actually blubbing. Here are a few shots from the day although they weren’t taken with the Nokia but the Ricoh R6 – quality is crap but the light was abysmal so the ISO was pushed way high.

In the footsteps of Henry VIII

I haven’t posted for a while so I’ve a bit to catch up on.

A weekend away at Hampton Court Palace in December is the reason for the subject title. A group of 8 of us spent a few days at ‘The Georgian House’ Landmark Trust property on the grounds. It’s absolutely fantastic. If you ever get the chance to stay there………do. Having access to the grounds and Palace courtyards after hours is a bonus and if you can cope with the difficulties of focusing the camera in the dark some good photographic opportunities. I didn’t manage to cope with the focusing in the dark BTW so there are only a couple of shots I approve of that might make it to my website proper. Mostly I took pictures with the phone, the shame of it, it was easier than karting the kit around and when we bobbed into London I only took the camera phone!! One place I absolutely wanted to visit was the new St Pancras Station and I was not disappointed. It’s Fantastic even if my images don’t do it justice!
