Photos of Birmingham’s canal network at night. Includes one of my favourites of Summer Row which is a 360 degree panorama from near the centre of the bridge as well as a pub and the Mailbox. Each photo has it’s own notes but be sure to click onto each image for a much larger version.
The above was shot just off Summer Row on a purpose built bridge linking both sides of the canal together.
Another view of the hotel but has the bridge again just offset from the middle. This was pretty difficult to stitch together as it’s a particularly wide image (at least for the lens I was using). I had to use two different software’s to get this to stitch but I really like the result.
Flapper and Firkin Birmingham. The yellow walled building is a really popular pub with students and other people alike. Dead cheap, good beer, good atmosphere and they have a lot of live music. I shot it in the way I did as I wanted to show three different aspects of Birmingham. On the far left you have the BT tower which represents Birmingham’s industrialism. In the middle you have just four high-rise apartment blocks (from the property I was living in at the time you could see 8 of these!) and in the foreground you have the social side. Literally just a 30 second walk behind where I was looking you also have the NIA.
Mailbox Birmingham. Really popular shopping centre with a lean towards designer stores. At the front of the building you have an Armani shop and Harvey Nichols and at the back you have overpriced and not very tasty restaurants. But still, I worked in here for around 3 years so I was keen to take one of these 360 degree images.
