So I have had a mid life crisis and have started my degree course studying B.A Hons in Photography.

First item on the agenda to break the ice was a walk around Cardiff shooting to briefs, one being covid-19, how its shaped the city and how shop fronts have been impacted. Here are a few images I shot on the day:

1. Cyclist

2. Croeso, which is welcome, but is it as you have to get past the wooden crate first, then there's the barrier and then the man!

Congrats on starting the BA! Which uni is that with?
Great shots by the way -I think I prefer the blacker tones of the coat in red shot, second to last.
Interestingly I very much recognise Queens Arcade from the pictures.

Thanks!

I'm studying with the University of South Wales at the Atrium by the prison.

Queens Arcade! Yep! Funny thing being a country bumpkin now bearing in mind I worked and lived in Cardiff so was a proper towny, I haven't been in the new part of the arcade for over a year and the old Queens Arcade which this is, probably over 3 years easy!

Congrats Gareth - studying as a mature student gives you a different perspective (no pun intended), particularly with your existing knowledge, experience and equipment - if you get good tutors it'll open your mind up to seeing in different ways
