Ceredigion Art Trail

from 16th August till 16th September, my photographs will be showing as part of the Ceredigion Art Trail

Port Talbot – 2011


the science and beauty of flues

I know a lot about flues; I have always relied on a fire or a stove for heat to a greater or lesser extent. Living and building in Wales has taught me a lot about the ways that flues work – or don’t.  Sometimes the flues I built just needed a little extra height to make the desired forces work in my favour. I gather from this photograph that the inhabitants had over the years had to add a little bit of height – just to clear the height of the ridge of the roof. 

Lugo, Spain – October 2006

guardian angel

The close proximity of the graveyard to the power-station got me thinking!  The guardian angel looks over the landscape – keeps an eye on all our loved ones in the ground. And the inscrutable power-station looks back at the angel. There is at once a safe and secure feeling engendered here; and yet there’s possibly danger too.
