At Victoria Square, but used for Council House
Bullring
Guess he wasn’t happy with all the visitors to the BullRing
Canal1
A lazy trip in a boat along the canal is a good way to de-stress. Been there, done that and forgot the T-Shirt

You can choose which way you wanna let your boat take you

Old and Mossy but still Majestic
cube
Looks like a kid’s building block plaything but does stand out among the modern 
HallOfMemory
A Gem is hidden among the rubble’s of concrete and cement for new buildings

Only if all the other libraries looked this fancy, heh!
SeaLifeMuseum
What better way to see a National Sea Life Museum but from the waterways 😉 (during our rainy boat trip)

When in Birmingham, think of Rome.

the peculiar air of Oxford

“… —the air of liberty to care for the things of the mind assured and secured by machinery which is in itself a satisfaction to sense.”- Henry James, English Hours

PS: Photographs from our recent one day trip to Oxford. Sadly we couldn’t cover as much as we had originally planned due to rain, but there is always a next time 😉 This place is definitely worth a visit again and in leisure.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Architecture

In the center of the city of Brighton, you will see a huge and prominent building called Royal Pavilion, which once served as a Military hospital for Indians during the First World War. When I saw I was reminded of the Golconda Fort and other Mughal Palaces in India, the ones I have been were in Hyderabad. This Royal Pavilion has a Mughal and Islamic Architectural elements to it and is very evident from its exterior. My friend told me that the place is ornate, but I wasn’t interested to see it that day. Perhaps next time. The exterior was designed by John Nash, a British architect.
