Birmingham {Viewpoint} Blog

As you may have noticed, there was no subject for April. I can only apologise (again) for taking my finger off the Birmingham {Viewpoint} pulse, but with the recent announcement of Birmingham Loves Photographers going into dormancy, I felt a compelling urge to get BV back on track.

I won’t bore you with excuses (although my wife is 37 weeks pregnant, there’s been plenty of house stuff going on, I ran the Birmingham 10k on Sunday and I also managed to pull muscles in my neck whilst moving a piano!) I’ll just head straight into the AWESOME month that is May!

We have not one, but TWO subjects for you this month…

  1. Birmingham’s Gas Holders: This is a subject I’ve wanted to cover for some time on BV. But seeing recently that a number of the UK’s gas holders are to be removed gave me a kick up the backside to bring the subject to life sooner rather than later. There’s more info right here about the gas holders being removed.
  2. Birmingham Shadows: This is one that just popped into my head, and wasn’t on the list here at BV towers. Looking through the photos on the likes of Instagram / Twitter / Facebook, photographers in Birmingham thoroughly enjoy light. And with light comes… Shadows! It’s the perfect time of year to go with a subject like this – and also think it’ll lend itself to some great photos.

So there you have it…

It’s a rollover! 2 subjects for the price of 1!
