I've been to Cardiff this weekend. I participated, with photographer Ian Willson, in the most excellent 2009 Cardiff Photomarathon. A challenge in equal measure to spirit and flesh it was with great satisfaction that we delivered our exposed film to the friendly team of volunteers at the Wales Millennium Centre, a full 30 minutes before the 10 o'clock deadline. Here are this year's topics: My Entry Number/Colourful Contained Roll with it Chip Age Crunch Black and White Social Network Spillage Missing Dressed to Impress Winner It all went quite smoothly, though I botched one frame and was annointed by a hungry seagull. As we were working with film I can't show you any of our finished work; for that you will need to attend the Photomarathon Exhibition at the Old Library Hayes Cardiff 25th July to 9 August. What I can show you is some of my 'notebook' images of ideas we pursued, developed, discarded and in some cases, submitted.

My Ceredigion and Cardigan Bay
Welcome to the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am a graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, The Repeaters. Then living in Llandewi Brefi, we had a grandstand view of Operation Julie. Eventually, after 2 years playing bass in Brighton's 256th punk band, I returned to Wales to deal in books and then antiques. I have trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web builder and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one.
