Rails And Sleepers On Barmouth Railway Bridge

Download the full-size picture to use as your desktop wallpaper.

My choice of desktop wallpaper today is another shot of Barmouth Bridge, a real photographic star.

One of the things I love about photographing this bridge is the rich contrast between the rusty red iron of the rails, and the wooden sleepers and bridge that they run over. It’s such a different view from what I normally see when waiting for my morning train at the local station. There’s something both outdated and romantic about it, but it is elusive.

Flexible Office Space at the Coal Exchange

Mount Stuart Square, a designated conservation area since 1980, is home to something like 60 listed buildings. Some of these listed buildings are considered landmark buildings; some are not.

The crown jewel of Mount Stuart Square is the Coal Exchange, where the world’s first 1 million pound business transaction was conducted. Today, it’s a multi-purpose building, and a walk around the outside of it reveals that it currently isn’t fully-let. I’ve never seen inside the building, so I’ve emailed the agent to see if they’d allow me in with my camera. If they do, I’ll share what I find with you 🙂
