I took a late Sunday afternoon stroll on Sunday, camera in hand to see what was happening around the City Centre. I wanted to get some “people” shots, but sometimes its just not happening so I ended up looking out for nice architecture and buildings. Of which there is loads! It was a nice evening and once the light dropped a bit there was a nice orange glow everywhere. A few of my favourites below. The first one in particular worked really well, and it all got rather exciting as I got kicked off by security so had to rush the shots!

Part of the Town Hall extension (I think)
Such extravagance! A light up seat
Its not all good. Scummy back alley.
The NQ. My adopted home. As much as I miss the Black Country, I wouldn’t have it any other way right now 🙂
The Roland TR-8 encourages ‘performance’ control i.e. making changes and sounds to beats as you record rather than editing after, so I thought I’d try and get a quick “improv” done – here it is, just a single take of drums edited on the go and a few synth tracks unrolled over the top! I’m hoping to get some “proper” tracks up and recorded soon as well as a classical piece I’m learning in my lessons (which will be tough work!), so watch this space.
