My day in Birmingham was super interesting – there is massive redevelopment going on all around the city, but there are still throwbacks to its industrial and commercial heritage. Its also seen lots of creative activity, where graffiti has evolved into street art such as this mural on the wall of a car park at Digbeth.
Tomorrow is a photo day in Birmingham with my brother. Plan is to meet for coffee and a catchup, then explore a few parts of the city and see what photos we can make. He will be tooled up with his Leica film and digital cameras, whereas I will just have my trusty Sony. Should be fun!
A ‘wrinklies’ day out – off to the Good Food Show in Birmingham, so a good excuse to go by train. Makes a change from using the car, even if it does take longer, and we had to stand part of the way back as the train was over-full… Still, a great day out overall, and here is the obligatory railway photo.
So today we took our 9 and 10 year old granddaughters to the tour version of Strictly Come Dancing – one of their Christmas gifts from us. Along with another 8000 fans in the audience in Birmingham, they absolutely loved it! We enjoyed it too, apart from the hour or so it took us to get out of the car park after the show…
