Cathays Station Grill

I shot this to symbolise what has been a growing trend in the UK over the last few decades … publicly-owned facilities (in this case, Cathays Railway Station in Cardiff) being fenced off so that private operators (in this case, Arriva Trains Wales) can charge us taxpayers for access.

With such disenfranchisement, is it any wonder that no-one feels a sense of civic duty any more?

The Fence That Goes Over The Edge

My desktop wallpaper today continues the post-Beyond The Border theme of the wonderful clifftop path easily accessible from the festival’s venue, St Donats.

This is a path on the move, because it runs atop cliffs that are slowly but surely being claimed by the relentless tides of the Bristol Channel down below. There are countless reminders of this along the walk, such as old fence post pits, bits of wall that used to be joined up, and even bits of open cliff where the safety fence has now been lost. My favourite from all of these choices was this solitary fence post, which still has a bit of wire clinging to it like two trapped lovers waiting for rescue from the inevitable.
