out & about

barry island

way back in 2011 i went to barry island to take some photos for a university project. only now am i blogging about it, haha! not really, i just wasn’t into blogging at the time, but i was looking through old photos recently and came across these and wanted to share them.

i want to get out to different places and take more photos this year, so i’m essentially using these photos to encourage myself. i keep using the excuse of having no car/being unable to drive, but then i realise that’s silly because there’s quite a few places near-ish by that are quite easily accesible by bus and/or train, plus a bit of walking.

barry island, penarth, merthyr mawr, st fagans, and cosmeston lakes to name just a few. all of which i’ve been to before, besides merthyr mawr. it is an absolute dream to go to portmeirion one day, but that requires more travel and i would love to stay for a couple of days, so more money too.

if anybody reading this wants to come join me in some photography based travels at any point, you are more than welcome, and it would be ace to have a photography buddy.

    I'm on board! I love love love Wales too – I got engaged just beneath the summit of Snowdon and it was magical, it was snowy and a perfect photography trip as well as romantic!

      thank you! yeah, when i went there was barely anyone there at all, the whole area was almost deserted! haha, yeah, i often come across old photos as i never used to be organised and filed photos rather randomly.
