Swansea City FC Bus Parade / by John Wellings

Being a Swansea native and having the chance to be at Wembley stadium to see Swansea lift the Capitol One Cup was quite a surreal experience. Considering the first game my dad took me to when I was eight years old was Swansea Vs Preston North End at the Vetch, the Swans had come a long way.

In some ways so had I. Standing, waiting on a freezing cold NCP car park roof top for the open top bus parade to begin wasn't entirely what I had in mind when I decided to pursue photography full time but I'll save that for another day.

In hindsight (And I'm good at that), maybe the rooftop wasn't the best place to be. Looking at some of the published images afterwards it definitely wasn't. But I took a punt on a=it at the time, one of those decisions that either comes off, or in this case, doesn't.

This is the first post of a new blogging venture for me. I already have a tumblr and a twitter and god knows what else but I want to have an actual blog for my 'work' photography and picture editing. I've a few ideas for things I want to write and hopefully I won't over think things and just get them out there.

Please bear with us, there may be more to come.
