Crossing Two Bridges

The area around Pont y Werin bridge is a little congested visually, perfect for shots like this showing a jogger in red crossing the footbridge whilst a white van heads west on the A4232 away from Cardiff Bay.

Balconies, Pont y Werin

The new apartment blocks built down in Cardiff Bay provide many photo opportunities, especially those around the new Pont y Werin bridge connecting the bay to Penarth. I loved the way the jutting out balconies drew the eye in, and yet at the same time provided a rich contrast to the brilliant-as-new white walls of the apartment block itself.

Statue Outside 1 Kingsway

I could not find a plaque at all naming this statue, but isn’t she a beauty? Shot at f/2.8 because of the very close proximity of all the buildings around this place.

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.
