When Jo and I walked around Birmingham last week, we were both struck by the architecture and interior of the library. We could both have spent hours there, but we dashed about, dazzled by the unexpected beauty in every direction. We tested funky chairs and colourful benches, took advantage of the facilities and peeped at Shakespeare’s memorial library. Here is a gallery of the interior, converted to black and white, I like the abstract look.
Jo, I can’t make any sense of the first picture, can you honey? I’ve tried turning it all ways!

I think it’s upside down, hon, but it’s a strange angle. Interesting though 🙂 🙂 They look good in black and white, don’t they? 🙂
The first one (with the daisy chain) looks like the front of the building but you’d need to turn it 90 degrees to the right or left – looks like a sideways shot? That library does look amazing.
A most fascinating set of shots, Gilly – I especially like the second and third! This is quite a departure from your usual…..
A great collection, and b&w serves them well. There’s a lot to love in modern architecture as your eye’s revealed.
On the list!
Wonderful abstracts, Gilly. That’s not how I remember the B’ham library of the 1960’s. 🙂
Very arty shots Gilly…doesn’t matter which way up they are 😀
I am in awe of these images!!!
Jo was probably wondering what the hell you are photographing. Ahihihi 😀
