Landscapes and Post-Industrial South Wales

Stuart enjoys taking great photos and uncovering the stories behind them.

His main photography project is Merthyr Road - a look at the history and the legacy of the industrialisation of the South Wales Valleys.

Baubles On A Tree

Welcome back to another week of photos. The weather in 2013 is proving as difficult as last year, but a couple of weeks ago we did manage to get out in the snow to visit Erwood Station Arts Centre. Unfortunately, the Arts Centre itself doesn’t re-open until mid-February, but we were able to snag some interesting shots from around the re-created station platform outside.

Out in the car park, we found these lovely glass baubles hanging from a tree. We loved the contrast of the colours between them and the green steam engine in the background.

Artistic Door Handles

Welcome to February … and to finish this week’s theme, here’s the most unusual door handles that I spotted whilst out and about amongst the shops.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s photos. I’ll be back on Monday with more desktop wallpapers.

Copper Dishes

Copper is another colour that’s underused these days, don’t you think?

Holly on Purple

I love the colour purple, and I think it’s such an underused colour. This is a nice wallpaper on its own, and if you’ve got two or more monitors, it’ll go very well with Clearance from last week.

Sewing Machines

I love this window display … in a world of very generic, nondescript chains of shops, I think they deserve credit for doing something very different. And before anyone asks, the dirt is on their window, not my camera lens 😛

Desktop Wallpaper: Goth Bag

Posted by Stuart Herbert on January 28th, 2013 in Desktop Wallpaper.

Goth Bag

After last week’s experiment (you all seem to really like photos with a lot of red in them!), I’m back to more traditional faire. This week’s theme is the last of my shots of shop windows from the Christmas sales. I hope you enjoy.

To kick things off, here’s a really striking image of a goth shoulder bag. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a cheerier-looking skull painting. Use this as your wallpaper, and you’ll get noticed from the other end of the office 🙂

Great Taste Award Winner

A simple but striking logo that’s in great taste in its own right. Spotted in a shop window in Bourton-on-the-water during the Christmas sales.

That’s it for this week’s theme. It’s something a bit different from my usual style, but I hope you’ve enjoyed it nevertheless. I’ll be back with more wallpapers on Monday.

Never Never

Back when I was a child, the ‘never never’ was how families paid for appliances and furniture in the home. A striking message in black on white. Spotted in a shop window during the Christmas sales.
