Pardon my ignorance, what is the giant disc behind the Hall of Memory and also the bridge like structure behind that? Your picture shows how orderly we are, coming towards you on the right hand side (your left) and going from you on the left hand side, in other words keeping right. The old photographers loved to animate their photos with people, particularly children, look at some of the fine Edwardian photos in the various forum posts. But, pause and look carefully at the picture and in no way does it represent 2019. There is something missing and not the fact that it is mainly men of a certain age, which gives the clue to what is not there. Keep going with the photos Ell, you are following the tradition of the early photographers, if it looks interesting photograph it. If no correct answers I'll leave it with you over the weekend and give the answer, if one has not been suggested
That's the Birmingham Big Wheel being installed for the annual Ice Skate Birmingham event. Returning to Centenary Square for the first time since winter 2016/17 (as the square was being done up until this past summer).
The bridge is on Centenary Way. Past Paradise Birmingham (being built on the site of the demolished Birmingham Central Library).
Are you in Birmingham right now? Many of you seem to have moved away decades ago, and don't really know the modern city being developed.
I prefer photos of buildings, statues, sculptures, landscapes, trains, buses, trams, planes etc. Not people really.
