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.

Towards Pontypridd

Blue Streak: Panel

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

I’ve blogged about the Blue Stream before, and about how nice it was of the staff to allow me to photograph the far side of it, which is normally out of sight from the rope line that runs through the hangar. Today’s shot – the last of this week – is what visitors usually get to see 🙂

BAC One Eleven: Passenger Seats

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

One of the static displays outside is the BAC One Eleven, and you’re allowed on board to see what British-made air travel looked like in the 1960’s and 1970’s. My eye was drawn to the repeating pattern made by the side of the seats along the main cabinway, and I hope you like it as much as I do.

Concorde: In The Hangar

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

Here she is – one of the most beautiful aircraft to ever take to the skies. It’s such a pity that we’ll never see her fly ever again. Doesn’t she look simply stunning?

Concorde: Cabin - B&W

This week, I’m sharing some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

I’ve posted the colour version of this shot before, but looking back at my processed photos I found this high-contrast black and white version, and I kinda like it too.

Extinguisher Below

I hope you had a great weekend. I got to see the Melingriffith Water Pump in action, which was a real treat for me. You’ll know if I was successful bagging a few shots of it, as it’ll turn up as a wallpaper theme soon 🙂

But before then, I have some more of my shots from Scotland’s National Museum of Flight, at East Fortune Airfield, to share with you. Mrs H and I spent a day there a couple of years ago, and we had a great time wandering through the four hangars photographing the static displays inside.

Today’s shot is, if memory serves, one of the panels by the front door on the Boeing 707, just behind the cockpit. We had to cram into the small space and wait until the cockpit was free for us to shoot, so whilst we were waiting I snagged this shot.

Looking Back

This week’s theme draws on the statues, memorials, and eye-catching street decorations seen on the streets of Edinburgh.

My final choice this week: a young man looks back at you, the viewer, as he and his colleagues charge fearlessly into battle for King and country. I believe that this is part of the Black Watch Memorial.

Canongate Bronze

This week’s theme draws on the statues, memorials, and eye-catching street decorations seen on the streets of Edinburgh.

I snapped this scene down at the Parliament end of Canongate in Edinburgh – but unfortunately I’ve waylaid my notes that remind me of the title of this bronze. Perhaps you recognise it?
