The weather this week in Cardigan has been changeable; warm and sunny, warm and muggy and today cool and rainy. Nothing unusual for August in the west of Wales. There’s something of a ‘mood’ (or should that be ‘atmosphere’?) about this kind of day. Perhaps it’s the rustling, cag(h)ouled trippers and the shiishing of the traffic. Or the dripping eaves. Anyway here’s my effort at catching the moment. Lazily snatched through the bedroom window; D90 and 18-200mm lens.

Paul Williams

This is the blog of Paul Williams, Ceredigion resident since 1970. I am an English and Philosphy graduate of what was once known as St David's University College, at Lampeter. I played bass in Dyfed's first punk band, and living in Llandewi Brefi, 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've trained and worked as a counsellor, I am a photographer, blog and web designer and I publish the annual Wales Antiques Guide. I am married and a father of one. Apart from my family, my interests include books, maps, Nikon, Yashica and Mamiya film cameras, British Culture 1935 - 1965, Poole pottery, Welsh textiles, and Poster art. My favourite movies include anything by Pressburger and Powell favourite music includes Gene Clark, Gram Parsons, and anything form San Francisco 1965-1970. I am a late convert to 'Kraut Rock'.

    That’s nice Paul. With maybe some finer-grained (lighter?) rain amd slightly more depth, I can see that selling as a postcard (though I’m not sure the Tourist Board would approve!).

  2. Thank you Bob; I agree the rain is too ‘fat’…

    It works for me. Memories of lying in the attic of house on Ebens Lane, reading Virginia Woolf and listening to the rain on the window…
