It must easily be about 15 years since I moved away from the Cardiff area but on my recent visit it was still strange to look at it with the eyes of a tourist.
The castle is still the same, and of course there will be more of that at a later date. The main shopping is housed in huge new shopping centers, very centralised and very chic and clean but without the feel of times gone by, after my experiences in the “Doncaster” shopping centre I kept my camera firmly inside my pocket here.
I went in search of the older, more familiar Cardiff and found it still thriving in the covered arcades near to the castle.
I’m still kicking myself for not visiting the indoor market but this being Cardiff, the capital of Wales, I couldn’t pass up the chance to photograph a young lady playing her harp.
