After a morning’s rain, yesterday remained very dull and grey. Rather than let that put me off taking photos, I decided to use the conditions to my advantage, looking at scenes with a black-and-white eye rather than colour, focussing on shapes and textures. The huge banks of mud outside Cardiff Barrage are always interesting but my eye was caught in particular by the tracks being made across the flat areas of mud by Black-headed gulls searching for food. Their meandering twists and turns reminded me of a drunk returning home after a heavy night at the pub!
