We Will Exterminate You

… and to finish this week’s wallpaper, here’s the real reason we were down in Cardiff Bay: to take our visiting friend to see daleks. Lots and lots of daleks. I think that made her quite happy 🙂

I hope you enjoyed this week’s wallpaper theme. I’ll be back on Monday with more of my photos to enjoy as desktop wallpaper. Have a good weekend.

Alien Device, Dr Who Exhibition

Cardiff Bay is home to the Dr Who Exhibition. It’s a popular tourist attraction (which would be even more popular if Amy Pond featured a lot more prominently 😉 ), where they’ve done a nice job of showing some of the props from the series since RTD restarted it. It is a bit dark in there (he says, in that understated way we British describe such things), making the props with their own internal illumination the easiest things to photograph. The whole lot sits slap in the middle of where Bute Dock West used to be.

Ribs Of A Ship Sculpture

Just in front of the Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay, there’s a lovely bit of sculpture in the shape of a ship to commemorate the docks that used to be there. For today’s wallpaper, I thought I’d shoot it from the other side, just to be different.

Girders For Wales Rally 2010

Whilst down in Cardiff Bay, we noticed piles and piles of girders all stacked up, ready to be used to assemble the facilities for the launch night of this year’s Wales Rally. Much to the amusement of my companions, I rushed over, shoved my camera lens into the pile, and fired off a few shots. I think it came out alright.

Side Of The Millennium Centre

Good morning. I hope the morning chill isn’t detracting from the beautiful blue skies we’re lucky to have today. I hear the forecast for the week isn’t great, so make the most of today!

This week’s desktop theme revolves around a trip down to Cardiff Bay with an old friend from university last Monday. To get us started, here’s a different shot of the coal scuttle (as some of us locals call it), aka the Millennium Stadium. There’ll be more tomorrow.

Project 25×9, because some photos deserve a wider perspective …

Bath Bath Bath

To finish this week’s theme of an evening in Bath, my final choice of the week is this window display just beside the abbey. I can’t explain why, but there’s something in this that I find warming and welcoming.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s choices. Please come back tomorrow when I’ll be publishing all 10 shots from my evening in Bath.

Staircases

I can’t count how many times I’ve walked past these during daylight hours and never given them a second glance … but in the darkness, lit only by floodlights and the overspill from windows and street lamps, I felt that these metal staircases really leapt out at me. I’ve indulged in a blue treatment of this shot to allow the focus to be on form not the varied colours.
