A trip to Cardiff

Last Friday saw myself & Mrs H take a trip out! Yes we finally decided it was appropriate to visit the Welsh capital, Cardiff. It was nothing to do with photography and everything to do with a particular jewellers shop that Mrs H wanted to go to but it was our first visit and so we made a day of it – particularly since it was a 5-hour round trip.

Before we went I used Google Maps to locate a few possible open-air car parks (I do dislike the multi-storey variety) assuming that we would end up parking well away from the city centre. However on arrival at Sophia Gardens car park I was surprised to find it virtually empty and it was only a brief walk to the city centre. The other benefit was that it was right next to Cardiff Castle and so on the way back to the car (after numerous hours looking at shops) we diverted into the castle gardens and I managed to take a few shots with my iPhone.
