The travels, musings and thoughts of a man and his camera.

BIRMINGHAM. Sweet is The Night.

Well 2021 has taken its last bow collected a farewell bouquet and has left the stage. It’s only three days into 2022 so too soon to come up with any real impressions of what sort of year it will be.

BIRMINGHAM. The Great Western Arcade, built above the railway tunnel connecting Moor Street and Snow Hill railway stations.

I’m involved in my usual start of the year game, trying to be organized and make some plans for the months ahead. Places to go to, projects to work on. That sort of thing. I wonder how many of the boxes I’ll have ticked by the time 2023 rolls around. But let’s not jump the gun, I want s few things sorted for this year.

I’m pencilling in a few destinations to go to. As always with one eye on whatever changes to the current situation come about.

The images peppering their way through this post are of Birmingham ( the UK one ), I last visited a couple of years back and I would like to go again. For reasons I can’t remember I travelled down in January, next time I go it will be one of the warmer months. I enjoyed the city but it was just a bit freezing.

The early winter nightfall though did have the advantage of producing some of the night time atmosphere I like in a city. The pools of light and the movement of people either heading out to home or coming in to party and how you can easily transition from a crush of people, turn a corner and find an oasis of calm. Like the city itself is taking a breather, waiting for the next, newly minted day to arrive.

Ahh, my not so favourite station, Birmingham New Street. Every time I visit I seem to end up leaving by a different exit. It’s like a railway station equivalent of the wardrobe in the Narnia books.
