Cardiff Central Railway Station
The weather has been awful all day. I fancied doing some street photography and headed into Cardiff.
Passing the Millennium Stadium and walking over the Taff, I saw Cardiff Central Railway Station and made my way there. It's always interesting seeing commuters bustling about. The blip photo is looking down in the main hall. I like the strong lines, lights, colours and people movement.
