Cathays train station, Cathays.

"Support local shops" - that’s been there years. On the bridge crossing the railway line if you’re playing spot the graffiti game.

Right by the start of what’s locally known as ‘Anarchy Ally’  between Park Place and the railway - not surprising that something like this appeared.

I sent you a package today and you can see pictures of the main thing in it on my tumblr okay cool

Oh, oh wow. Seriously, just wow. So many of my favourite things (pretty books, wood stuff, Made Up Languages! eeeee!) and in such a beautiful, beautiful thing. I wish I could tackle hug you via the internet. I can’t wait for it to arrive - although I’ll be hard pressed to actually use it in case I make it less pretty. I only hope I can return the belated present anywhere near as well. So yes, thank you, thank you, thank you Sarah - it’s Lovely.

Door Mat ‘garden’ seen on Woodville Road in Cathays. Pretty sure it’s a matter of student laziness and lack of tidiness than any sort of statement.

Well, that was an adventure.

Was this the bloke? I took this photo in 2008 so if it is he’s been doing that trick a fair while - and is still one of the most unique and memorable buskers I’ve ever seen.

Not quite Cardiff-y although it was a field trip with the uni there that led me to eventually painting this thing in the end.
So, this is my painting entry to the 2014 Botanicality contest on Tumblr.Go over and take a look if you could and vote! Maybe even for me if you like it more than the other entries. There are some beautiful things done for this event so I do recommend at least having a look.

The Gate Arts Centre, Keppoch Street, Roath.

I remember going to The Gate as part of my 21st Birthday Cafe Crawl - they do an absolutely wonderous hot chocolate and gave me a free drink because it was my birthday. They are also next to where the Roath Farmers Market so have a look at both some weekend when/if you’re free.

Let’s play the Identification Game!
(extra points for correct species rather than a general - ooh, that’s a diatom stuff)
