Beautiful sights are on our doorsteps, quite literally. I went for a late evening walk on the Garth on the off-chance that I might see the Almost full July 'Buck' moon rise over Cardiff, and I wasn't disappointed 🙂 though the blue hour photo doesn't really do it justice :-/ . . . . . #findyourepic #Instawales #Instacymru #DiscoverCymru #Igerswales #Igerscymru #GloriousBritain #Shareyoursummer2017 #nightsky #ig_nightphotography #astrophotography #universetoday #nightscape #fs_longexpo #longexpoelite #rsa_night #starrynight #citybestpics #agameoftones #city_explore #illgrammers #thecreative #shotaward #seemycity #createcommune #igerswales #igerscymru #southwales #igerscardiff #thisiscardiff

For unexpected angles of this wonderful city of ours, get on 18 year old xeno.v (aka Qureshi)’s feed. He posted one of our most viewed IG photos of last year – the beautiful shot of the ‘Cardiff eye’ from Winter Wonderland last year.

We couldn’t finish without including our very own rescue dog, Zelda. We rescued her from Cardiff Dogs Home last week, and she’s quickly becoming an Instagram star! I mean, we would say this, but we think she’s adorable. If pets on IG is your vibe, follow her! (More about how we got Zelda here: Meet Zelda)



The We Are Cardiff Instagram Project: March – Rhian Richards

Oh howdy there, good people. I bring you joyeous and exciting tidings of our We Are Cardiff Instagram Project! I set up a We Are Cardiff @wearecardiff Instagram account a couple of weeks ago, with the intention of passing it around to different people in the city for a month at time, to get a Cardiffian’s-eye view of happenings in different places.

The first couple of weeks were me, in and around Cardiff Bay. But I’m very happy to announce that the first month – the month of MARCH 2014 – will be attacked by Rhian Richards! Rhian is normally on Instagram on @rhirhigabor, but has agreed to take on March for We Are Cardiff. Here’s a little bit about Rhian. Enjoy! Helia x

Rhian Richards

I moved to Cardiff in May 2013 but have lived here before between 1998 and 2003. It’s changed a lot since those days!

On weekends I like watching films, meeting up with friends, cooking, going for walks and taking photos.

I have an obsession with castles and places of historical interest so I love exploring them and taking pictures so my favourite Cardiff haunts so far are Castell Coch, Cardiff Castle and Sain Ffagan.

I also love nice restaurants and bars. Among my favourites are The Potted Pig, The Cosy Club, Bills and Mezza Luna. Nom!

On a Wednesday night you can usually catch me in line at The Odeon Cinema in the Red Dragon Centre waiting to geek out with a good film.

I also enjoy horse riding and get back in the saddle whenever I can. I go to Cardiff Riding School in Pontcanna Fields.


If you’d like to commandeer the We Are Cardiff Instagram for a month, email wearecardiff@gmail.com, with a brief description of where you live / work / what your leisure activities entail. Get involved, like!

We Are Cardiff featured on Guardian Cities

At the end of a crazy busy week on the blog (in terms of visitors and page views, it’s been our busiest week ever AND we had our busiest day EVER on Tuesday!), we finish up by being featured on Guardian cities as one of the best city blogs around the world.

Obviously I’m totally chuffed that the blog has made it on there, but ever heard of Guardian cities? No, neither had I. Well, here’s some background to it:

Guardian Cities was launched in 2014 to create a fresh and engaging hub for reporting and discussing urban life and the future of cities around the world. The site will host opinion and analysis from a range of voices across the globe, along with news, graphics and data…” (to read more, go here: About the Guardian cities site)

So there you go. Watch this space for more on that!

 In other news, we’ve totally set ourselves up on Instagram. Follow We Are Cardiff on Instagram!

That’s it for this week, I think! Enjoy the rugby, for those watching it tomorrow – and have a great weekend all!
