How often do you just look up? Fiona Handscomb writes on her Birmingham Post blog:
I began a kind of dislocated-neck walking tour of the city centre and, since, have started taking a craned neck approach everywhere I go. Yes, I have bumped into a few disgruntled pavement-dwellers and yes, I probably now need physiotherapy, but my eyes are having a marvellous time – spotting e.g. gargoyles in Moseley and tree-tops growing surreally out of warehouse windows in Digbeth.
Seriously, just try it. All the beautiful stuff goes on above our heads.
It has changed her view of Birmingham from a “grey suburban sprawl” to a thing of beauty. Which is exactly how illustrator I heart Joan also sees her home city:
Wonderful image and geat advice. So do you look up? If so and you have any more images inspired by this please tag them Birminghamct or leave us a comment with a link. Thanks to Chris Unitt for spotting this one.
