We’re used to seeing the Welsh capital in all its colourful glory – but these photos by a local photographer show Cardiff in a different light.
Evoking the threatening mood of 1980s Eastern Europe the photos by Simon Boughton show famous and not so famous sights.
From the back streets of Caerau to the splendour of City Hall at night – the black and white shots bring out a different colour of Cardiff.
Mr Boughton, whose father used to work for the Western Mail and Echo, posted the photos on his Flickr account.
He said: “I’m a Cardiffian and I enjoy taking photos around the city. For ages my interest was sparked by my father who had many a camera – in fact I’ve lost count of how many he had.
“My photography took off in 2000 went I went travelling and has become a major part of my life ever since. When I’m not working I’m always snapping away.”
