Uwchraddio - upgrading
27th January 2012 - 0 comments
Fe fyddaf yn uwchraddio'r Orielau yn sylweddol dros yr wythnos nesaf, ac fe fydd rhai pethau'n edrych braidd yn rhyfedd ac allan o drefn tra mae'r gwaith yn mynd yn ei flaen. Ymddiheuriadau! Fe ddylwn i orffen erbyn y 3ydd Chwefror, gobeithio.

I'm in the middle of upgrading the content of the Galleries, and while I get on with the job, things might get a little messy! Apologies. Hopefully I will have finished by 3 February.
Noson ym Methlehem - An evening in Bethlehem
26th January 2012 - 0 comments
Heno roeddwn yn arddangos lluniau (gyda nifer fechan o artistiaid a dylunwyr lleol) yn Ysgoldy Bethlehem, Llandre, ger Aberystwyth. Cynhaliwyd y noson gan Wyn Melville Jones, a oedd yn cyflwyno llun arbennig i'w arddangos yn yr Ysgoldy.

Fe ddangosais 3 print A3, dau o rai lleol iawn, ac un arall mwy celfyddydol ei naws yr rwyf hoffi ar y funud (yr angel sydd ar y dudalen hafan).

Noson hyfryd, hamddenol, ond biti bod rhaid hel ein traed am saith ar gyfer twmpath y pentre! Lluniau o'r noson yma!

This evening I attended an exhibition by local artists at Ysgoldy Bethlehem (Bethlehem [Sunday] Schoolroom). The evening was arranged by Wyn Melville Jones, who presented a painting to the Ysgoldy to the chapel authorities.

Some pictures of the evening, you might spot a few of my prints somewhere in the background.
The Story of Saunders Lewis
17th January 2012 - 0 comments
Mae'r llyfr y bum i'n gwneud mymryn o ymchwil lluniau arno, sef "Stori Saunders Lewis/The Story of Saunders Lewis" ar gael yn y siopau, neu trwy wefan Gwales.

A book for which I did a little picture research is available via book shops, or on the web via Gwales. It's a bilingual publication, and is an excellent introduction to one of the most influential figures in Welsh life, language, politics and literature during the latter half of the twentieth century.

Newyddion da, a diolch i BT. Trwsiwyd y llinell ffôn heddiw.

Good news (I think). Thanks to BT for fixing our phone line today.

Mae problem technegol wedi codi ar y llinell ffôn. Os ydych yn dymuno cysylltu, ffoniwch y rhif symudol, neu defnyddio'r ffurflen gyswllt (linc o'r hafan).

There's a technical problem with my landline, so if you need to contact me, please call my mobile, or use the "contact" form (linked from the home page).
2012 ymlaen â ni

Wel, mae'n edrych na fydd gennyf luniau del o eira ar gyfer farchnad Nadolig y flwyddyn nesaf. Mae'r tywydd wedi bod yn arbennig o fwyn, os yn wyntog ac yn niwlog ac yn wlyb. Ond mae fy nheithiau teuluol i ogledd Cymru wedi rhoi'r cyfle i mi dynnu llond dwrn o luniau rwy'n eithaf balch ohonynt. Rwyf wedi roi fy ffefryn ar dudalen hafan y wefan hon. Ys gwn i a fedrwch ddyfalu pa un?

Gan ddymuno blwyddyn newydd dda i bod un ohonoch.

No pictures of snow this year, it appears. The weirdly changeable weather has yet to produce any snow here in our corner of mid Wales, but as a neighbour gloomily mentioned, the awful snow of 1947 and 1963 didn't appear until mid-January!

My family trips to north Wales have produced some quite nice pictures, however. I've added my favourite to the home page slide show. I wonder if you can spot which one it is?

Wishing you all a happy and healthy 1012.

Roedd hi'n ddiwrnod agored difyr yn Archif Genedlaethol Sgrin a Sain Cymru heddiw. Wele'r lluniau o'r offer ffilm hen a newydd o'r "tu ôl i'r llen"

Llew Du - Black Lion
12th December 2011 - 1 comment
Rwyf wedi bod nôl a mlaen sawl gwaith yn ddiweddar i'r Llew Du yn Nhal-y-bont. Nid i slotian nac i besgi, ond i ddarlunio'n hen dafarn ar ei newydd wedd. Mae Siôn a Catrin wedi gweddnewid yr adeilad rhestredig yn fwyty modern a chysurus.

Cymerwch gip fan hyn

I've been back and forth to the old Black Lion pub, Tal-y-bont rather a lot lately. Not to imbibe, but rather to document it's rebirth. Siôn and Catrin, the new owners, have restored and updated the listed building and transformed it into a classy yet homely restaurant.

Ar y gweill
29th November 2011 - 0 comments
Fy mwriad yw mai hwn fydd fy mhrif wefan o ddiwedd y flwyddyn hon, ac fe fydd yn cymryd drosodd o'r blogiau tatws.blogspot.com a traedmawr.blogspot.com

Felly "ar y gweill" mae'r wefan hon ar hyn o bryd. Galwch heibio o dro i dro i weld sut mae'n siapio.

This website is currently "work in progress", but hopefully will take over from tatws.blogspot.com and traedmawr.blogspot.com towards the end of the year. I'll see how it goes.

Call back from time to time to see how I'm getting on.

Hwyl
