    Shot these on an earlier walk with the dogs, the weather is bright clear and cold for April, but I'm not complaining, as long as there is no rain I'm happy.



    The Fountain was a gift to the people of Merthyr, from Lord Merthyr Sir W.T.Lewis in 1906, and was dedicated to the Captains Of Industry, including his Grandparents Robert and Lucy Thomas pioneers of the South Wales steam coal trade. Elaborately wrought in iron with fantastic decorations. Iron mugs on chains were originally present for the use of the thirsty passer-by.







    Salem Chapel was Built-in 1855. Closed in the 1930s, then used as offices and Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses.

    Dropped the car off for its yearly MOT, so off I go for a stroll with the Bedlington boys into Abernant Y Gethin Woods, there is much activity going on I haven't been there for a little while, lots of earthmoving and drainage work taking place, they have pushed a road right to the opening of Aberdare Train tunnel, the tunnel has been closed for trains for nigh on 70+ years, it's over a mile long, connects my town of Merthyr Tydfil to Aberdare, when I was a young boy I used to bunk off school and with a few mates and a couple of torches we would walk through there, I also took a few photos of our industrial past old mine working outbuildings and structures looks like there is only one winner when nature wants to take over, nature being the clear winner here.

    I took these few over the weekend, Mr David Harris, Mr Gary Handley, Mr Brad Price and a shot of myself using my super wide-angle lens, the last shot is some youngster down on his luck and out of his mind on Spice by the look of things.

    I have to repeat my earlier observation that B & W portrait images convey more character than colour photos. The B & W portraits of historical figures by Cavoukian famously demonstrated that.

    Great shots Jaimie.

    Are these images digital or film? If they are digital, did you use any particular B&W film simulation setting in camera to imitate the look of a specific B&W film?

    Bob, there are two ways you can do it, on the camera go into your white balance settings, go to creative style choose black & white, or upload the image take it to your editing program and simply switch it from colour to black & white, both look exactly the same whichever you choose.

    Yes, I realise that but what I was wondering about is that Fuji cameras, for instance, will let you select the look of specific Fuji B&W films. I realise that you can manipulate manually both in camera or on the PC. I take it that you do it yourself to suit your taste in how the B&W should look for the image.

    Yes, I do, portraits almost always look better in black & white, although when I shot in 35mm film I almost always used black & white film over colour.
