I had to travel to the Jewellery Quarter in Birmingham, an area with a dense concentration of businesses involved in the jewellery industry (hence the name). It’s an interesting area to wander around, and clearly has a lot of history. I’ll be back here quite a few times over the coming months so I’ll try and add a little more information about the place as I go. But for today just a few introductory images.
I had to go to Birmingham for work today. I’m making an effort to take the camera with me again when I travel places, I’ve got out of the habit and get frustrated when I see something that I think would be a good photo but don’t have my camera. The few shots from today were taken as I walked from New Street to Snow Hill in the morning.
I had a bit of time to spare before giving my penultimate lecture this semester and decided to sit out in the sunshine, and make the most of not being in front of a computer. Nice to see a bit of colour on campus at Coventry University,
Do you know when you go somewhere and take so many photos you then struggle to go through them all? I suffer of that problem. Back in January 2013 we visited Cordoba (there are some photos here), and I never did finish trawling through my favourite photos of those holidays. So here is the Mosrque-Cathedral of Cordoba, at sunset.
