Friday Diary: Black & White in Birmingham / by daintydora

I was a bit obsessed with taking pictures of the bullring in Birmingham last week, and random street scenes, which I love. Here's a little photo diary of my weekend escapades:

That bull looks so fierce, doesn't it? Especially with the drama of a black and white shot.

A tiny olive branch of colour here; I couldn't resist. The street art was fantastic.

I didn't know Ozzy was from Birmingham. Is he really from Birmingham?

The library was fascinating. Modern art in itself with a viewing platform so you could look out onto the city. I think it's definitely one of the tourist attractions. I could have spent much longer wandering the aisles of books and the pristine archives.

This shot was taken inside one of the exhibitions at IKON. It was actually a bit disappointing in that there was nothing much to see. But the writing was on the wall...

This weekend I'll be staying closer to home.

Happy weekend!
