My wallpaper theme this week sees me return to posting photos closer to home, of distinctive images taken in and around Cardiff. Europe’s youngest capital city, Cardiff is an eclectic mix of the occasionally ancient, the Victorian and Georgian, and the mostly incongruous architecture of the last twenty years.
Definitely falling into the last category are both the St David’s 2 Shopping Centre in the background of this photo, and the CCTV camera hoisted up above the throngs of people heading to and from the new shops. It’s a dirty job, as we can see by the condition of this camera (which might only be a couple of years old) but someone has to do it.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
