The Queen visited the Senedd in Cardiff yesterday, 7 June, to open the Fifth Welsh Assembly.
I took my trusty OM-2N along and to take some photos. I usually find at this kind of event the people watching make the most interesting subjects, rather than the actual event itself.

This was how many people viewed the events, with mobile phones held above heads
Not quite sure what the pick axe is for!

We’re all mad here
Think she might be a Royal supporter

Interesting read. Close to the Senedd is a sculpture installation commemorating Welsh soldiers who died at the Somme. So this seemed quite appropriate.
