All true... really don't like these cheap plastic lego buildings though and considering they are relatively new they will be there for the rest of our lives :-( Funny how sh#t like this gets built and quality like Unity Sq will probably never make it off the drawing board ?

Despite all the crap on London Road I do like the Lace Market vista, these building don't enhance it sadly...

I bought a DSLR camera so I took to the streets today for some street photography, I came back with 800 images so I'll probably be posting up a few more, but here's a couple to keep you going.

The nice images on here inspired me to take a couple of snaps out of the window at work this morning. Unfortunately I could only take them through the glass - and our window cleaner hasn't been around for a week or two!

Here's some shots I took tonight. Was up there for about 20 minutes before being escorted off the premises, along with a group of lads on the stairwell smoking weed.

You found it then. Good view from up there isn't it. It looks even better at night. Bit scary up there though when it's dark.

Some of Nottingham from around 1 and a half years ago, it just shows how much potential this side of Nottingham has to have a big skyline:






Here's a dodgy stuck together panorama:



I assume they were taken from one of those mini robot helicopter things?

Also I edited this picture adding 2 of the currently approved buildings for East side, both are 10 floors high, one of them is just a massing model

It's a pretty bad edit, but you get the idea:
