Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery

This is a wonderful Victorian /Edwardian building. Home to some wonderful things. The Staffordshire Hoard is here, there is an Exhibition of paintings by Burne Jones and a very nice cafe.....

It all looks quite refined for Birmingham, Bill.
Bill Phillips: This is a reminder of what a great Victorian city Birmingham was
I love all that marble! Lovely comp, Bill!
I really like this album... this is a great track!
Bill Phillips: You might find the music interesting this week E

It has a lot to offer, Bill. For years I have been promising myself a visit
Bill Phillips: Chris wants to go too so there's your chance!

I might have to visit this place
Bill Phillips: I think you should. It is only a few minutes walk from the rebuilt New Street Station

Oh, I should visit this Museum and Art Gallery one day. Birmingham stands on my wishing- list.
Bill Phillips: You would enjoy it very much Philine and a trip to the symphony hall for a concert would be a great experience too
I really like your perspective in this image, Bill. Fabulous lines and designs.

A big BTW: that Raising Sand CD is one of our most favorite ever. We often play it at dinnertime all throughout the year! It was given to us years ago by Astrid's bother.
Bill Phillips: I found it looking to find out who did the song originally. A great version, but you might find the music interesting this week

This looks very grand. I would have headed straight for the cafe, I think.
Bill Phillips: It is worth looking around first. The cafe is splendid though

It looks like some wealthy person's over elaborate home Bill. I must visit one day to look at all the exhibits. I have not heard that song before.
Bill Phillips: You would enjoy it Chad

You will have further opportunities song wise as the week unfolds
the little bit of dark foreground (carpet?) is slightly conflicting with the lighter marble shades elsewhere but i like this wide view of the scene, Bill.
Bill Phillips: I can't remember Ayush. I know the difference in lighting needed a fair old twiddle to get detail into the foreground without burning out the background
What wonderful marble.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Mary
What a magnificent building.
Bill Phillips: It is Brian. I had forgotten just how magnificent it is

Always worth a visit!
Bill Phillips: I seldom go to Birmingham but this is worth the effort alone
Must get down there some day - it's a while since I was in Birmingham.
Bill Phillips: We seldom go there. We lived there for 5 years when we were first married but I couldn't live in a city now
