Sleepover in Casnewydd aka Trefdraeth aka Newport West Wales
Sleepover new set
Very interesting images...many beauties and some haunting, ReD. I like the reading choice, as well.
An unwatched DVD BB
It's a lovely little place; beautiful coast and the mountains a little inland (where the Bluestones came from). Some very good local artists & musicians too. Unfortunately rather being taken over by wealthy second-homers which is pushing property prices far out of reach of those born & brought up locally.
Some great shots, but I don't see any sleeping going on.
Perhaps you were sleep shooting.
The B W with mirror was our bedroom - I woke up with light piercing the shutters & reached for my camera
Paul - Absolutely right on all counts. Visited some Studios in Porth Gain - best I've seen outside of our local art Gallery.
Not sure what the answer is on second homers - they bring in tourists but property prices are too high for local incomes. I asked a question what does it cost to get a property on the beach & was pointed to a house first nicknamed 1.2 by the locals (£1.2m purchase price) after renovation it has now been re-nicknamed 2.4. ( Local builders must be happy).
Roger, a friend of mine used to live in Newport, and still lives close by and I sent her a link to your photos.
She liked them (especially the teacup) but also says: "If he thought he was in Casnewydd he was very confused! Casnewydd is in Gwent - he was in Trefdraeth! I think casnewydd might be new castle [castell newydd] but not sure."
So much for for Google translation then
Also no ref to Trefdraeth on links I looked up - bad form I say
Sleepover in Trefdraeth it is then
Are these image links working for everyone?
They Show for me but there maybe a problem
I see just the one I commented on already in BW thread. Others are no-go.
i didn't do an exact count, but only around a dozen or so are showing for me.
Thanks Luke - ok then I'll repost if photobucket behaves
Very atmospheric set that perfectly captures the weather
Great place and images captured the atmosphere well.
The Area can be a bit Bi-Polar but not as bad as the Industrial Areas of South Wales
This one is the brickworks at Porth Gain Harbour - reminds me of the engravings by Piranesi
See now, if I try taking photos like that they end up looking like nothing even remotely coherent or interesting. It's a skill is that, taking photos of the mundane and making them look like something special. Lovely set of photos ReD........ No, lovely 'interesting' set of photos.
