Birmingham gets everywhere!

Outside Euston Station ...

Block or beautiful? The BL in London

London Town

Ain Sakhri lovers - 11,000 years old
Viking arm ring - found in a builder's sock drawer
Coin reducing machine ... and notes and coins from around the world

All for free! At the British Museum.

Not to forget:
some splendid old photographs ... and the history of photography from the earliest Daguerrotypes, Fox Talbot, Colotypes through to box cameras for panoramas and popular use.
All at the British Library's Points of View exhibition

Demolishing the flats

Half the top's
skewed off already,
walls only now:
doorways, windows exposed,
crane-craw bent down, huge, in front,
to rip out the next stack of passed lives.

City Centre

Full circle ...Town.

And this on the way to work ...

Poplars watching

Footprints in the snow ...

Brave people prepared to stand up for rights in their country, prepared to face real risks. More than anything I've had to face or think of facing. Brave people.

Time to get going - the hardest thing? Or just what we all have to do?
