The time of year for Christmas shopping has arrived, and after wandering around through several photogenic streets, I settled on the clock tower at the end of corporation st.
At the top of my road is a pretty average row of shops, on the top floor of which is a tutor style row of flats, and seeing as a bunch of people have started taking black and white photos, I jumped on that without being nominated!
Another building one, the one is part of the Birmingham University Sports centre.
At one of the stations in the city centre, the track is cut deep into a verge. The rails are far beneath the surface of the road and everything going on up above, and it’s all held back – the cliff like bank – with great dark brown brick arches.
This building is the Rotunda. It’s a pretty old high rise office building in my city, and it’s been there for far longer than I remember. It stands there inherently recognisable from the miles surrounding it.
I was walking my bus route today as my bus decided that it wouldn’t turn up… But on the way I passed by a pub and on its wall was this ivy covered notice.
Old and modern buildings can be found together all over my city. I find it amazing how some of the most expensive and biggest houses can be so close to some of the smallest and cheapest.
It’s my grandparents diamond wedding anniversary! And to treat the family we have been put up in a rural converted barn, of which most is extremely modern, but the old wall still remains. A nice touch, I thought.
