The Slug

This building is called the Wales Millennium Centre. This may be the official title but I have been told that it is known locally as the slug. I recognise it as I have been to Cardiff before, but since then I have mostly seen it because of auditions for Britain's got Talent - or maybe other programmes of a similar vein.

The photos were taken from Roald Dahl Plass. Roald was not born of parents who could not spell Ronald. In fact they were Norwegian, but he was born in Cardiff and that' s how he managed to get this public area named after him.

The obvious difference between the two photos is the orientation. The photo on the left emphasises the foreground structures. The most prominent tower has water running down it and I understand this gets turned off in high winds as nobody can walk near it. On the right the landscape format emphasises the main building. So whether you are a Millennium fan or prefer Roald Dahl then you can hold your camera vertically or horizontally.

Happy snapping
