A long day last week photographing silver spoons - proving that if God had wanted us to photograph silver he wouldn't have made it shiny - from a bag I found in a cupboard. Silver spoons of this age (early 19th century) have seen some action, and quite intimate action. It occurred to me when giving them a cursory polish there are not many antique items that have so repeatedly been handled and indeed, licked.

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.
