In the summer of 2009, Mrs H and I went on an ill-fated fortnight’s holiday in beautiful North Wales, basing ourselves just outside of Barmouth. Although some of the photos I took that fortnight have featured in my desktop wallpaper series, this is the first time that I’ve pulled together all the shots taken on holiday by theme.

We went back to Llangollen, having pre-booked tickets on a canal boat to take us over Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, and we were not disappointed. Fantastic way to mellow out, and the views whilst travelling over the narrow aqueduct were just as enjoyable as when we’d walked over it earlier in our holiday. Highly recommended.

My choice of wallpaper today is this shot of a garage door in a very fashionable suburb of a very fashionable city. It is one of many such doors, and walking around I was struck by the idea of how absurd it all seemed to me. We value things over fellow people so much that we build little houses for our things (i.e. garages for cars) whilst houses for people stand empty, or are crammed into tiny spaces (or worse, one on top of the other) so that families have little or no gardens, and no-one has room to simply breathe and relax.

Is it me, or do we sometimes get our priorities badly wrong on this tiny little island of ours?

I’ll be back tomorrow with another desktop wallpaper choice to share with you.
