Silent Sunday My Sunday Photo 280216

I was in Birmingham last Sunday, a city that has changed so much over the years I’ve visited it.  I love architecture, old and new.  Buildings fascinate me and I wish I had the design flair to come up with some of their designs.  It was the first time I’d seen Grand Central (New Street Station) in all it’s glory.

I love the distortion in the reflection – is it glass, mirror or water?


About Over 40 and a Mum to One

A Mum with a 9 year old son, enjoying life and having fun as my son travels through school life. We love to get outdoors whenever possible and make the most of the world around us. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing days out, toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. What a great photo and what a good eye you have to spot these things.
    Isn’t Birmingham just amazing at the moment? We were lucky to go in half term and we saw Grand Central in all its glory and it’s mind blowing to think the old train station could be so transformed.
    This is a great shot and testament to the changes taking place in B’ham right now. I love its new look!

  2. I knew what your photo was from the thumprint on the linky…it just shows how iconic Grand Central is. I find the mirrors a little strange but my kids love to walk under them and look up at their reflections. I find the eye a bit creepy too, but I’m glad they changed it advertising instead of camera views from inside the station.
    Your photo is a great capture of the distorted buildings, from a distance I think it looks like the building are melting.

  3. Looks like a mirror to me but it could just as easily be glass. I used to go through New Street Station every three weeks years ago but haven’t been through since it’s been changed. Interested to see what it’s like now!
