    20. Back towards the ‘yellow floor’… 21. The first (traditional) photography wise thing you come to is the dark room on the left. When I studied here, there was still a colour dark room on the opposite side of the corridor (now gone). If you have ever exposed paper in a colour cubicle room...

    Birmingham Central Library 2010 Pictures

    Birmingham Central Library is one of the best buildings in Birmingham imo, its cold grey exterior hides an amazing architectural layout inside. I suppose it is a ‘Marmite’ building, some people love it and others hate it, well I love it and it will be a shame to see it go. The Library will be...

    Longbridge underground tunnels

    I think I will add my 2 cents worth of info, pictures and videos I have taken and gathered from Under Longbridge over the last 3 years. Regarding the open/not flooded bunkers and tunnels dotted around the factory, I have been in virtually all of them. I am not going to give out the...

    Vale Onslow Motor Cycles - Stratford Rd - Documentary Pictures

    Some important notes that I must say: This is a working shop, it is still trading and open to the public, the owners gave me permission to document the workshops and trade area as well as everything else. The owners would not like other people coming in asking if they can take pictures, so...
