An afternoon in Aberystwyth 4 of quite a lot

The north part of the beach is overlooked by a mix of Victorian and Edwardian buildings. The south beach is not so lucky and the blurred buildings in the centre right background are particularly nasty

Excellent Bill, really like fore-background contrast here - quite dramatic!
Bill Phillips: I usually make a mess of doing this!!

Its like the gal is sitting, Gulliver-like, in a toy Village, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I hadn't thought of it like that but I can see what you mean Ray
Background? What background?
Bill Phillips: Drag you eyes to the right Larry

4 of quite a lot! What sort of talk is that chum? It makes little sense. An pm in Aberwhatsit is quite long enough I should imagine, just like WestonSM. Lovely piccy btw.
Bill Phillips: It was an enjoyable pm and better than I expected. Better than WSM.

Quite so: it looks as if the 1970s planners were determined to wreck the place, and from the look of it they've half succeeded
Bill Phillips: Happily the north end is much more pleasing
looks like you were very happy with your visit Bill
Bill Phillips: I was indeed Richard. Even this failed to dent my pleasure too much.

Stone- weatherbeaten- grey is the main colour of Wales in my memory - but you seem to be more interested in 'young, fresh flesh and blood' (sorry, German phrase to describe the feelings of older men) - but I know you enjoyed your holy days there together with your Angela!
Bill Phillips: LOL!! Ange was sat next to me when I took this

The young lady gives a nice contrast to the human intervention in the landscape beyond. Very nicely done Bill.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you sir smile
Beach? What beach?
Bill Phillips: It is on the right not in the picture. You will see more of the beach in future exciting episodes of this series Mary
Looks like wonderful surrounding scenery Bill smile Nice shot of the girl perched above smile
Bill Phillips: Shame about the buildings Martin!
Looking at the sharpness of the girl seated on the cliff set against the blurred background gives the image almost a 3D effect, Bill.
Bill Phillips: thanks Beverly. That was what I was trying for

Social housing, perhaps? Some of our building back in the late 20th century left a lot to be desired.
Bill Phillips: Could well be. doesn't look very Sociable
Yes, anything for a fast buck in the property development world!
Bill Phillips: Sad but true Tom
Great perspective and depth of field in this shot. I like the composition too.
Bill Phillips: Thank you Ioana. I have just been over to look at your blog. you have some fine pictures.

Quite a lot of development in the last 15 years. I remember first going to Aber in the 80's on a wet day and thinking it seemed a drab and uninspiring place. Got to know it a lot better later and changed my mind, also a good staging post for places like Borth and beyond where the coastal character changes completely to sandy beaches and dunes
Bill Phillips: It became very run down but certainly looks to be much improved and, of course, it boasts a very fine University.
You did a lovely job on this Bill - despite her surroundings, she looks contemplative and at peace.
Bill Phillips: That's what i thought. Very contented.
I like the selective focus of the girl on the hill Bill... if the buildings in the right center are nasty... then you framed this shot perfectly....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter. It is a shame the background is not more appealing but i liked her sitting there.
