I always find Brum amazing for even when you think you know the place something surprises you.

The CBSO building reminds me of Glasgow and the flats next door are quite different with tall pillars.

The annoying but amusing thing is that everywhere I go now I see great photos in my head of views.

Great photos Feltip - you've clearly got a very good eye for some unusual perspectives - keep it up!

What's this by the way? Reminds me of Grosvenor House but I don't know why!

It was the ouline at the top & balconies that made me think GH. I hadn't picked up the detail of the balconies before. Now that's not a building to jump off in a hurry.....not that I would, but you get the point....or would get the point....oh never mind!
