Tin Shed Experience

Oh dear, I forgot to take a photo between 8.00 and 9.00pm on Saturday. I spent the day with a Flickr Group in Laugharne, near Carmarthen. Then got home and had to do a quick change and out again to an engagement party in the evening so it completely slipped my mind. (Feeble excuse, I know.)

Laugharne is famous for its association with Dylan Thomas, of course. However, the most interesting part photographically as far as I was concerned was a small 1940s museum called the Tin Shed Experience.

I felt the spirit of Snaarman with me as I took these...


Saxophone by Cariadus, on Flickr


Kettle by Cariadus, on Flickr


Jerry cans by Cariadus, on Flickr


Link in the chain by Cariadus, on Flickr


Lantern by Cariadus, on Flickr

All taken with the E-M5, first two with 20mm/1.7 and the others with 45mm/1.8.

Out of 15 participants only two weren't using Canikons - including me obviously. I was using the E-M5 and I also took my Hasselblad along. The other non-Canikon was using a Sony dSLR. I didn't get any negative comments about kit, though, everyone was very friendly. And hopefully I've been able to show what m43 kit can do (haven't processed the Hasselblad photos yet).

I did take other photos in Laugharne, but these from the Tin Shed Experience were my favourites of the day.

As usual comments/criticism welcome.

Re: Tin Shed Experience

My kind of Museum, and well catalogued too, Roger. If you ever get into Cambridge, get into The Folk Museum on Castle Hill, everything in there from Punt Guns to Sugar Loaves.

Re: Tin Shed Experience

Nice & interesting set here anyhow. I also missed the time slot as I was out trying to buy pizzas for dinner (too lazy to cook that night) & after waiting an hour for them, all thought of getting any photos had gone. BTW, the pizzas were still worth waiting for (just) as they were well topped. I should have taken photos of them for that time slot.

Re: Tin Shed Experience

Nice set, with lovely composition and pleasing bokeh. With respect to taking a photo between 08:00 and 09:00, I think it's a good discipline at this time of the year, but I reckon the modern sensor gives you an extra hour with ease (and that's just with JPEG).

Re: Tin Shed Experience

These are certainly Snaarmanesque and I'm sure Pete would be proud of them, particularly as they were taken in a shed - and a tin one at that!

Thanks, I've been to Cambridge a few times, but only briefly. It is a potential holiday destination at some point so I'll bear that one in mind.

I had pizza yesterday as well, in a pub in Laugharne, and very nice it was too.

Yes, I think you're right there. If I'd remembered I would have taken one later, but I completely forgot until I read the forum the next day.

I think Pete would have been in his element at that place!

Re: Tin Shed Experience

Very interesting set. <pedantic mode> Not jerry cans, but pre-date them. Jerry cans were developed during WW2 and have a fancy clip-on cap </end pedantic mode>

All good candidates for the mono treatment, as you have demonstrated with some.

Tin sheds, as proved here, can be very interesting.

Thanks Stephen, happy to be corrected on the jerry cans.

I nearly converted them all to mono, but I liked the subtle colours in the kettle, and liked the rust colour in the chain.
