An Autumnal Photoblog

It might be an ugly city, but there are some lovely places in Swansea, as I hope regular readers of this blog have witnessed. So, seeing as i’m too lazy to write anything, here’s another pic.

Lovely place!

Since when has Swansea been ugly?

I’m with Ruth here- who said Swansea was an ugly city. And I think, considering some of the pics you’ve posted here, you’ve more than proved otherwise.

Nice one though, love the sunlight through the trees!

Leaping to Mike’s defence: No less an authority than Dylan Thomas, who famously described Swansea as an “ugly, lovely town”. Something like that, anyroad.

Thanks Richard! And I was referring to the built environment, not the surrounding landscape. It has some reasonable features, and they’re making efforts now. But, to be honest, it’s a town planner’s nightmare.

Still, a great place to live.
