The Aneurin Bevan, Cardiff

This unusual building stands on the roundabout formed where the A470 down from Merthyr meets the A469 down from Caerphilly. It’s currently a Weatherspoon pub called the Aneurin Bevan after the founder of the National Health Service, but it is a site that frequently changes hands.

I’ve been unable to track down online anything about the older history of this site, and especially whether this building pre-dates the construction of the Gabalfa roundabout or not. If you know, please do let me know.

Chopping Board Lit By Ambient Light

This is the shot that gave me the idea for this week’s wallpaper theme.

This is simply a red chopping board held up in front of the kitchen window at home. I like how the shadows of our plants (okay, the wife’s plants!) on the kitchen window sill have added a bit of variety and subtlety to this shot.
