An afternoon in Aberystwyth 8 of quite a lot

This is the north beach with some fine Victorian and Edwardian buildings. I recall coming here some years ago and these were in a sorry state. A lot of renovation has taken place and they are starting to look rather grand once again.

Looks like a nice place to visit...

Ver nice fence, Bill...should be stout enough to stop the drunks from falling in to the briney, heh!
Bill Phillips: Sad but true Ray
The lines and repeating patterns are wonderful. Such a great shot!
Bill Phillips: That is very nice of you to say so. Thanks for visiting
I love your angle - looks very cool! How was church? You weren't struck down? smile
Bill Phillips: No I survived:d It was very enjoyable. Knowing the vicar well and some of the congregation helped!

Great shot, love the play of lines. Great choice of B&W.
Bill Phillips: In colour the large blue telescope dominated the picture!

Gentrification has happened: in other words the English have moved in
Bill Phillips: As the surname Phillips has its roots most commonly in the Swansea area I suspect you are of Welsh ancestry.

I especially like the wonderful white railing curving around in front, Bill. Perfect in B&W.
Bill Phillips: So do I Ginnie

A beautiful image- Aberystwyth can compete with the Royal Crescent in Bath!
Bill Phillips: When I was last in Aberystwyth many of these houses were looking the worse for wear. Happily they have been restored to something like their former glory.

By including the railing in the foreground it acts as a barrier presenting the viewer from being led into this picture and along the terrace. Justbthoughtnyoud like to know.
Bill Phillips: I respectfully disagree

We were there years ago Bill and thought the how run down they were.
Bill Phillips: It was dire when i went there....one time in February when it really was depressing. It looks a lot better now and worth a visit
Hells bells man ... you have made Aber'th look rather charming.
Bill Phillips: This part is Richard. It looks a lot better than it did a few years back
I have to disagree with Trimbo.
Bill Phillips: Thing is Trimbo knows what he is talking about
Love the railings through this fine scene - great Bill!
Bill Phillips: They looked quite pristine!

I remember the fire that broke out in 1998 and engulfed seven sea front properties and made the national TV news - just before my son started uni there.
Bill Phillips: It was looking very sad when I went there in the 90s. It has improved a lot which is pleasing
Exqusite presentation Bill! Perfect angle and compo!
Bill Phillips: Thank you very much Ioana
It's wonderful to see buildings like these restored to their former beauty, Bill. I can just imagine the fabulous view the owners have from the front-facing windows. Very nicely shot in B&W.
They really are archetypal seafront buildings aren't they.

This does look rather grand from this angle. I like the use of the handrail in the shot. You're make a decent photographer yet smile
Bill Phillips: No danger of that Alan...happy snapper that's me
follow the curve... great in B&W!
Bill Phillips: didn't work in colour at all Sesan
Magnificent point of view and great depth Bill... your photo has three dimensions to it....petersmile
Bill Phillips: Thanks Peter, much appreciated
Love the tones and depth to this Bill, a fine capture.
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you Sir
Beautiful perspective with very nice graphics Bill!
Bill Phillips: Thanks Richard, pleased you like it
Great composition!
Bill Phillips: I am obliged to you sir
very clean it looks..
Bill Phillips: It was Juan Carlos
I like all the lines in this, even down to the shadows on the telescope base.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Graeme. It worked for me in b&w but was nothing in colour
