Photos: Llandudno at Dusk

A series of pictures from Llandudno , perhaps my favourite ‘proper’ seaside resort; purpose built and now retaining at least some of its original Victorian gentility. The Great Orme and the stupifyingly claustrophobic copper mines, thought to have underwritten the building of the Wessex ‘henge-opolis’ , all part of the package.

These shot with my Fufi S1 and 24mm and 50mm lenses . I was clearly an art photographer at this point, exaggerating the grain and pushing the saturation. Or maybe a little too much in the thrall of Photoshop?

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'.

    I like the lamps and the pier. Almost a HD look.

  2. Thanks Ian. I’ve never tried for that HD look though I think it sometimes looks very impressive; I get the idea that it’s suffering a backlash…
