Progress came to a shuddering halt at Bleddfa Road last week, due to my wife being hospitalized with Covid-19. Thanks to some excellent care and treatment she is now back at home, and on the long road to recovery. I too have tested positive for the virus but only have the symptoms of a mild cold along with a loss of taste and smell, so we have been very lucky indeed. We stuck rigidly to the rules, had our shopping delivered from day one, and on the rare occasions when we ventured out we wore masks. So please do be careful out there, I would hate anyone to go through the same experience as we have. I think it will be a while before my modelling gets back on track, so I will leave you with a selection of monochrome images that were taken a few weeks ago.
Sometimes I think monochrome is better suited to layout photography, especially when trying to capture the atmosphere of the 1950’s to mid 1960’s.
One of the biggest challenges that I faced, was in trying to capture the feeling of open countryside, on what is a relatively narrow baseboard for a 7mm scale layout.
Once I feel up to doing some modelling I intend finishing the lime kiln siding, the kiln itself and the road bridge.
