Kettle

This week’s desktop wallpaper theme is a set of photos I shot of items I shot inside the house at the weekend. Abstract photography is something I do rarely; I hope you enjoy this set of photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

My choice today is the wonderful deep orange of our kettle. We’ve got one of those kettles with clear sides and bottom, giving a clear view through to the hot plate that the kettle sits on whenever Mrs H needs a cup of tea to make her feel human again.

The Rooftops Of Cilfynydd

Cilfynydd today stands on the northern edge of Pontypridd as it creeps up the Taff valley towards Abercynon and beyond to Merthyr Tydfil. It sits to the east of the route of the Glamorganshire Canal (now buried beneath the A470 trunk road).

Most of the old terraced housing was built between 1884 and 1910, with the population exploding from a hundred or so people to over 3,500! This sudden population of what was originally a farming hamlet was driven by the opening of the Albion Colliery (closed 1966; today is the site of Pontypridd High School) in 1887. The village suffered great tragedy and loss in 1894 when 290 men and boys were killed by a massive underground explosion in the colliery.
