Yn Gymraeg

Hi guys, my name's Luke and I enjoy photography, I’ve always been interested in documentary photography and photojournalism, an interest which maybe one day I can continue to take further when I’m older. But thus far I’ve found it hard to put into practice and so I thought I’d try it out and see what I’m like.

So I thought that I could take a subject or place then take the appropriate photos, but not ones that you may usually see, i.e. the ones that don’t stare at you straight in the face.

In the end I chose Cardiff’s Indoor Market in town, as I hadn’t really been in there for years. And instead of shooting at ground level I decided to wander upstairs, a place I’d never been before!

What a shock though, the architecture of the ceiling is so much more than what I expected and really comes out well in the photos.

I’ve chosen five pictures to upload onto here (all hugely compressed and downgraded due to uploading difficulties) that hopefully you’ll enjoy.

The photos include:
Architecture4 - A view of the ceiling and market below
Architecture3 - A view from the side of the first floor
Kelly’s Vinyl Store1

Hi Luke
Can you tell me where I could find archive photos of Newport market, going back to the 1960s? There doesn't seem to be much online.
