I was asked by my Mum if I could make an image of Caerphilly Castle she could use on the invitations for her upcoming wedding, I had a few shots left on my OM-1 on a roll of Agfa Vista 200 so shot these off as well.
I grew up in this town and spent an awful lot of time near this location. The castle is one of those things that you take for granted as just something that’s normal when you’re a child, especially growing up in Wales where there are literally tons of them all over the place. The castle is right in the centre of the town, the lake/moat surrounding it takes up a huge amount of space, as does the surrounding park, and it’s a location you just tend to walk through on your way to go shopping or to get from one side of the town to see your friends on the other.
This the last post in a series across this week of the Ogmore River, the other two can be found here and here, and this time it’s of the ruined castle itself that sits next to the river. The photo below was taken on my Nikon FM with 28mm on Ilford FP4 125 ISO film at f11 1/125th sec.
