Man Ceiriog

This ruggedly handsome chap kindly let me take his portrait as part of a seasonal series I am work on. He was pulling a large cart of wood up a steep lane when he kindly stopped for me. He looked great – straight out of Lord of the Rings I thought. I just need to get three other local folk to agree to seasonal environmental portraits for Winter, Spring and Summer and that’s my Four Seasons of the Ceiriog Valley exhibition entry sorted. It all sounds so straightforward in words. Oh, and I really need to find this chap again and ask him to sign a model release form. Easy.

This crumbling Welsh cottage was only accessible by climbing through ivy and a partly collapsed doorway. Well worth the liberal covering of dust I left with.

Summertime rolls…

These shots were taken in the rather wonderful Ceiriog Valley, North Wales.

‘Breathe Out’, Jan Singleton.

These fabulously expressive glass pieces are by glass artist Jan Singleton, who runs the beautifully converted Pandy Mill Gallery and tea rooms in the village of Pandy, Ceiriog Valley, North Wales.

The images I photographed ‘quietly’ while I was there (sorry Jan). With a backdrop of trees and the river, the pieces have the appearance of shimmering as the trees move behind the glass.
