1965 (yes !)
IN THE EARLY 1960's
A recent trip to Death Valley, California.
Hanging out in Egypt!
While I was in Egypt, I was lucky enough to have a 35 mil Pentax with wide a angle lens with me, I managed to take some fabulous pictures of the architechture, sometimes in the early dawn light. So if you see some oddly tinged hues in the collection, it's not Photoshop!
So click the link below for some cool shots of Egypt.
The first "proper" band.

parents are Welsh, and were born in the industrial town of Port Talbot in South Wales.
My father has always been a champion of the Welsh and the Welsh language. He has written a fascinating essay about his upbringing in Port Talbot, with some insights into the state of the Welsh language over the last 100 years.

faded photo on the right is a small piece of history. Shot in 1943 in Port Talbot, South Wales, it is a school production of Pygmalion.
On the far left is my father Graham Hughes, on the far right, in the hat, is my mother Phyllis Dolan, in the middle, and clutching his lapels, is Richard Jenkins, later to become the famous Welsh actor Richard Burton.
This is a photo of my mother from the same production, on the back it reads:
"Mrs Eynsford Hill, Pygmalion/43"
