A stroll in Birmingham

In the morning of Saturday the 6th of october, we went down to the reception with the intention of ordering a cab to get to the main shopping street. When we got down there we realized it was a perfect sunny day, there’s no window in the rooms, so we decided to walk instead.

Which I’m glad for, because there is too much to see. Birmingham is a beautiful city, with a lot of old buildings in contrast to new and modern ones.

 And you know me, I love architecture!

 

Just had to get a picture of this sign, because I find it funny that UK need to have these. And I love how the sun sneaked its rays in the picture.

Below is the beautiful church that was right beside the hotel.

Thos buildings with glass structure seems like majestic gates we have to pass through to enter the heart of the city. Absolutely wonderful how they’re a big contrast to the brick buildings in front of them.

Interesting cross-over for pedestrians,it disappears into the building!

 

 

Over the bridge, then the city just hits you like a wave~

Lovely architecture.

This was one of the best parts with the walk, except for finding a place to eat break fast. Look at the contrast between two brick buildings. Light and elegance in contrast to dark and stiff. The red pipes still amuses me.

Streets in Wolverhampton

 

Today I woke up with a sore throat and feeling a bit ill, just my luck. Still I have managed to eat breakfast out, stroll around in the city locating different store and eaten a delicious veggie burger for dinner. After that I decided to go to Boots pharmacy and get something for the cold. So happy that they have Strepsils here. It is working wonders. Also bought cold & flue relief tablets, which I think I will be taking before going to sleep. I hope this goes over pretty soon. I suck at being sick, and I don’t want to be sick when we hopefully move in at the house on Friday.

So, I just got some street pictures to share with you today~!

I have also tried to give my blog a new design, but haven’t been able to find something I’m satisfied with. Just choose this design as a temporary one. I really like how it looks when you go in and read entries, but I’m not sure if I like the main site. Tell me what you think!

The Port to Life

 

Once again playing with my backyard port....

I really liked the yellow light in contrast with the light outside~

Something that isn’t related to this; I applied for a leave of absence  for the last 3 days before christmas, and got it approved. Very happy with that~ I also had a math test today and can’t let the feeling that it had a trick question go. It was to easy, there must have been one in it!

Elegance in the Streets

I probably don’t look at the city the same way as many others. I don’t claim to be special or better, but I see a lot of people looking down or straight forward and never above the first floor. I think I’m one of the few stupid people who keeps looking up to the sky when wandering around.

Believe me I have tripped over lots of things, edges and my own feet, because of that. I’m just to busy ogling at the architecture to watch where I’m going. I used to be one of the kind that always looks down, but as my interest for architecture has grown I have started to look up.

So that’s why I can stop and admire a building and others just don’t get the beauty i see in that “awful mass of a brick/concrete lump”. No, well, I don’t get what you see in ugly asphalt scraping cars or super greasy football players. Different taste I guess.

Edit: Cuz, to me it looks like people dont get it, click on the pictures to see them bigger! I can see in my statics if they’re clicked or not. And it would really make me happy if you did, it would be like telling me you like them ~
