Would you choose this picture to advertise your business? I’m sorry for the quality I haven’t a very good scanner. But I couldn’t resist sharing this with you. At first sight it does look pretty — but take a closer look! The fountain has no water but has plenty of litter in its bowl. The pavilion behind it is even stranger — it has boarded-up windows and could do with a lick of paint.
The photograph is taken in the local park at Aberdare. Shortly I will take a walk through it and show you the really stunning views. It is a lovely, serene place in which to spend an hour or two just sitting on the many benches or lawns or, of course, reading in the peace and quiet.
