Last weekend I headed down to Birmingham for a few hours exploring the city. With limited time, my first port of call was Milk Street, where there is an interesting set of arches in the railway viaduct which are occupied by various businesses. There are alsosome cool graffiti paintings on the walls and gates in this street.

After that I wanted to get some shots of the iconic Selfridges building with its “curves and circles” so I went up to the top floor of the car park opposite, and was able to get some interesting shots with the walkway, and also looking down. I then went back to street level and got some close up shots.

The outside is clad in a unique design which makes for some great pictures.

Inside, this is a super modern building across many levels. I love the open atrium and looking down from the top floor gives a really unique view. There is also a number of outside rooftop gardens which offer some great views across the city. Well worth a look!
