Artistic Photograph: Aberaeron

I posted recently on Facebook a link to a Helsinki photographer. His work was mildly interesting and really only because I know someone who travels from UK to Helsinki fairly regularly. I thought he’d be similarly ‘mildly’ interested. I hadn’t reckoned on the photographer’s blog title including the words, ‘Artistic Photographs’. There was a time, long ago, when that could mean only one thing, nude or erotic photography. So disappointment all round when the Artistic Photos turned out to be of Finnish Lakes, Ducks and City Scapes…
So, by way of an apology for raising false hope here’s a woman with seaweed on her face from my ‘Things You Might Find at the Beach’ series…

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'.

    It’s totally great. You hide your light under a bushel…

    I did wonder, but the conjunction of ‘artistic’ in *that* sense and ‘Aberaeron’ was problematic… woman in traditional welsh costume takes her shawl off?

    Agreed, it is a nice picture!

  4. Bob says:

    Mmm… liking the sound of that…

  5. It’s certainly an idea that has its attractions; it could never be as bad as this…

    Hmmm… I don’t know so much… I’m seeing really rather good-bad…

  7. I feel you might have inadvertantly thrown down a challenge… I think I’m the man for the job.

    Touché. Blog’s title has now been changed to assume a more “accurate” representation of its contents. Accept my mild apology.
