Gas Street Basin Birmingham

Inspired by Paul's pics of the canals in Birmingham on Four Thirds site, I visited and took lots of pics. Those who know Birmingham will realise that the third one is in Centenary Square. The canal pics have been converted, they seemed to cry out to be in mono.
I have many others, some showing the vibrant colours of the boats - I will post some of those when I have looked at them properly.

Re: Gas Street Basin Birmingham

Very nice photos Shirley ..... you folk who live in the UK don't know what wonderful material you have to work with photographically. I who visit on a regular basis do not drive so I don't get into spots like these unless a friend takes me. Keep up the good work Shirley and everyone else. I do enjoy this forum!

Nice images Shirley. I like the first one expecially, to bad that their is a generator in view on such a nice lookng old boat. I think your going to B&W works, as does the soft look of the second shot (it looks a little like the old canal post cards I've seen)

Thanks Bill,
I think its true for all of us that we often miss what is underneath our noses. I was bought up in the outskirts of Birmingham and my parents still live there, but I haven't been to Birmingham centre for 20+ years and I dont think I have ever been to the canals themselves! It was only when I saw Pauls photographs that it inspired me to visit.
Thank you Danny, yes the postcard style was what I was aiming for, I am glad you feel it works.

A nice set of pics and well worth the visit Shirley. It's easy to overlook whats right under our noses and I'm glad you enjoyed it .
