    For Christmas, we made our biennial trip to Wales to spend it with my family. I grew up in a little town called Cowbridge, not far from Cardiff but in the countryside. While there I took a walk through town with my GH3...

    Wonderful! Years ago I thought of doing graduate work at the University of Wales at Aberystwyth; your photos make me regret that I did not do so.

    Ah well, I would like to say you didn't miss much but (despite the creaky victorian seaside buildings) I have an affection for Aberystwyth. I had a number of friends who did undergraduate degrees there who I would visit from time to time. Unfortunately my mother was not such a fan of my trips to Aberystwyth as I managed to prang her car (I had borrowed it) on a visit there :mad:  but nevertheless I enjoyed myself... I suspect the weather is better in New Mexico though!

    Absolutely no complaints about New Mexico weather. I moved here from Boston over twenty years ago to escape the dampness and cold. Now, much as I love Boston for many things, its weather is not among them, and the move is something I definitely haven't regretted.

    Cheers, the second photo is of the town hall, which used to be the town jail. Underneath, a couple of cells survive and have been converted to a small museum (complete with the remains of a Roman legionary and his equipment). While it's now a fine Georgian town hall, there are times when I look at it from certain angles and imagine it without the clock tower and the Georgian windows as a jail in the late 18th century...
