New Street Central station and the Ikon gallery 

After the library I decided to visit the Central Station – which I noticed was very reflection  friendly when arrived in Birmingham last night . The outside of the building  is covered in metal panels that break up the reflections of buildings etc in the surrounding area. Sunlight  also reflects off the metal and it dances on building across the way. 

The ceiling of the station 


Out side the building I came across some lovely reflected light that I could not stop taking pictures of 


I looked up – unfortunately I didn’t realise that I wasn’t quite in focus until later 


I tried to do a panorama round a corner – it doesn’t quite work but you get the idea 

The Ikon gallery is a white space inside a converted Neo- Goethic building ( I had to look it up ) I was fascinated by the stairwell
