There was a great sunset over the Vale of Glamorgan last night. Reminded me of a Turner painting. We get some great sunsets in South Wales.
I recently discovered Stuart Herbert’s Photo Diary.
Stuart is an excellent amateur photographer who concentrates on landscapes and Post-Industrial South Wales.
He’s currently documenting the Merthyr Road – the legacy of the industrialisation of the South Wales Valleys from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff Docks.
Stuart is great at capturing the essence of the industrial South Wales valleys and his photos are well worth a look.
So some strange goings on in Cardiff Bay as revealed by Google Street View. Street View has provoked some controversy and some interesting comments over privacy issues but at the end of the day it doesn’t actually show anything that isn’t publicly available to someone walking down the street on the day that the photos were taken.
However, it has shown up some really bizarre things going on in the streets, even in our own Cardiff Bay. The Street View snapshot above shows what appears to be a ghost in Cardiff Bay!!
Some people seem to think that it’s related to the wormhole situated in Cardiff Bay shown in Torchwood. I think it’s more likely somebody advertising the forthcoming Mary Poppins show in the Cardiff Bay Millennium Centre 🙂

I got some good action shots using a long lens.
This guy was quite a way out and I took the picture hand-held so it’s a bit unsharp but the you can see the fear on the guy’s face! Much better than I can do though!
