IMAGES IN PRINT..

Back in the 'summer' months, I covered a photo-shoot with Top Welsh International Match Angler Iain Swanson at the Festival Park for The 2015 Browning Angling Catalogue which is distributed Worldwide..
Just been informed that one of the images has been placed on the front page of The Catalogue..

The design was done by 'The Boy' and was put on the car by an Ebbw Vale Company PMR Signs..

FAMILY ALBUM..

Had a cracking photo-shoot yesterday evening in beautiful sunshine with a family who has also booked me for a wedding next year.. Good business that eh..
Just finished editing the images, both colour and b&w which are going to be hard which ones to choose for enlarging.. 
The family walls are going to be full me thinks..

BEHIND THE LENS..

So the next project up for NCR Photography is Life in The South Wales Valleys in B&W..
Yes, we do have lots of beautiful colourful scenery but I've always been in love with the medium of black & white and hopefully the images will show the loveliness of our areas too...

GWENT DRAGONS..

Just back from covering the Gwent Dragons v Northampton Saints pre-season friendly at Eugene Cross Park..
On a night which favoured ducks, the rugby wasn't overly exciting but the stars were out for both sides and The Gwent Dragons clinched it at the very end by 27-25...
The crowd was fairly decent but there was still the thorny issue of missing support from The Valleys Folks.. 
BUT I must say, that during the build up, during the game itself and after the game, I did NOT hear the name 'Newport' being chanted which is one of the big bug bears of why there is no support from The Valleys fair play..
What the future holds I don't know, will tonights game get Support trickling down to Roders? Who knows, maybe, just maybe...
my images from tonight game can be viewed here Folks..

THE MIGHTY WHITES..

LEEDS UNITED v Bradford City
Venue:- Bradford
Comp:- Capital One Cup
kick off at 19:45hrs
Live on Sky Sports..
COME ON THE MIGHTY WHITES..
MARCHING ON TOGETHER..
LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS
RESULT
LEEDS UNITED 1(0)-(0)2 Bradford City
Down to 10 men in the first half and it was just a case of when & not if Bradford score.. Even with 9 minutes of time added on!!
Another pathetic Sunday morning Pub performance from The Lads but when we have a non-league manager & people on the field of play who are not worthy of wearing the Famous Leeds United Jersey, the future is not exactly great..

SHOPPERS GALORE..

Popped down to The Festival Shopping Park earlier with Er Indoors as The Boy was in college checking in for year 2 and a new IT course..
Seemed to be rather busy too which is brilliant for the centre especially on a day when the weather doesn't favour venturing outdoors..
There is only one unit which is empty and that is the jewellery store..
The cafe's and coffee shops were busy and as always, so was M&S maybe with winter woollies being the order of the day for young 'n' old...
Seem to be quite a lot of day trippers in the centre too with coaches parked up at the rear of the car park..
click here to go to The Festival Park's Official Website, here for their Facebook page and here for their Twitter site..
It's also where The 2014 Festive FACE will be held too Folks and The Valleys FACE can be followed on Twitter and Facebook.

UNBELIEVABLE...

WTF has been going on in Rotherham!!!
It's about time these ANIMALS & Their Like are PUT DOWN!!!!!!
How can those who new what the **** was going on, NOT do anything about this!!!!
Are there no 'men' with backbones and bollux living in that area!!!!!!
There are no words at all that can describe what has gone on.....
