Margam Abbey And Stone Museum

We’re so lucky to live in an area that has so much history, so much natural beauty and so much to photograph. Today was an organised visit to Margam Abbey & Stone Museum in Margam, Port Talbot, South Wales. The Abbey was built originally in 1147 and you can read it’s history a little later.

Today was something unusual for me, as I was armed with not one, but two cameras! My Fujifilm X-T3 was equipped with the TTArtisan 7.5mm F/2 lens, while my Olympus Pen EPL8 was armed with the 14-42mm pancake lens. It was a beautiful day, the sun blazing down, and what better way to spend it than take photos of this historical building.

All the images below are the edited raw files, edited in Darktable. Please click on them for the full EXIF data if needed. I decided to go for frames and a classic Kodachrome feel for the colour images.

So, there we have it. I think since getting the Olympus, my photography has become much more deliberate. Between the two cameras I only took 140 photographs today, and at least 30 of those images were part of bracketed shooting.

Thank you for taking the time to look and read, and I hope that you enjoyed.

  1. Shooting with a manual lens like the TTArtisan 7.5mm and the E-PL8 does indeed make you spend more time shooting, and I think that feels good. Great pictures Mark !
