trees rains and trains in birmingham and walsall

walking the stairs again

all ten floors of Merton House
JUST FOR EXERCISE
3 upwards then 10 down

when the 97 got into town they were still clearing up in the market.

Bullring Debenhams plastic trees now have fairy lights.


I had to go back outside because the videophone froze
and I had to reboot it by taking the battery out.
sony "best pic" phone - Google Search
Best Pic shoot mode (captures 9 frames in succession) but locked up a couple times if I was slow in saving my chosen pictures.





Debenhams - Birmingham, Upper Mall East, Bullring, Birmingham ...Upper Mall East, Bullring Birmingham, West Midlands, England: ... Though the company dates back to 1778, the Debenhams name first appeared in 1813

Bullring CHRISTMAS AT THE CENTRE: "SHOP UNTIL 10PM - From 4th to 22nd December, Bullring will stay open an extra two hours until 10pm from Monday to Friday. "


on the first bridge
from Lord of the Rings
and the second bridge into the Pallisades Mall and New Street Station


where I took a green train to Walsall

Walsall station platform 2 and 3

not so much going on in Walsall



so I decided to go home

massive coal train passing by Walsall platfom 2

and I met this photographer and train spotter waiting for a special train to come by


I did not catch the first train back to Birmingham

at last the train spotters delight in recording history - four old electric locomotives being towed to Long Marston to be stored by the Ministry of Defence



back in Birmingham you can see the two bridges I crossed earlier











I am heading for these newly discovered steps



and I nearly dropped my videophone
whilst the BEST PIC (tm) took its 9 snaps in quick succession





turning around towards St Martins, through the Bullring and to the 97 bus stop by Allison Street































looking back from the balcony
























new graffiti when I got back and climbed the seven flights - with a stop on the fifth to get my breath back

I was hungry when I got in and ate this whilst I waited 40 minutes for the steamed rice and cabbage
