Gladstone’s Library is a beautiful old library in North Wales. It was founded by William Gladstone, former prime minister of the UK.

Project 365.358 – Lines

Another from Birmingham University campus, one of the newer buildings. I really liked this angle of it, with the overhead walkway and the planters leading off into the distance.

Project 365.316 – Night

It’s the summer holidays. Glorious! The staff at the school had an end of year party, and on the way home from that I took this of the many contrasts the city throws at you in the dark.

Project 365.315 – Coach House

I pass this every morning getting to work and I have always thought it’d be a good subject. I guess I have just been waiting for no cars and good lighting! It’s at an orthodontists, weirdly.

Project 365.309 – Clear View

I was picking my partner up from university today and stepped out of the car to look through the building site gates towards Old Joe. This view, a few years ago, wouldn’t have been there as the old buildings have since been removed. It’s impressive now, and will be even more so when the park area is finished.

Project 365.288 – Industrial View

The view of Digbeth with a rolling cloudy sky. I was in town getting a new bus pass and happened on this view while walking back to the carpark.

Project 365.270 – Dance Hall

So many buildings go out of use. It’s reasonable to expect that people loved these buildings. People may have fought against their closure. It’s particularly horrible when the shell of it is just left behind for years.

Project 365.234 – Old Glass

I was playing imposter student today as I went, with my partner, to one of the university bars for pizza, cider and chat. Good fun, good times. But breaking away from the main party you’re reminded that it’s an old building you’re in, despite the modern bar interior.

Project 365.231 – Staircases

I really like repeated patterns in architecture, I have found. The order is pleasing. I wish I could have framed this shot a bit better though.

Project 365.208 Hanging Basket

Today we went to breakfast at one of those chain pubs which always seems to inhabit nice old buildings. Hermit Pubs as it were.
