10 on the 10th ~ Christmas in Birmingham

On Thursday night I went into Birmingham City Centre to meet friends and had my compact camera with me rather than the all-singing all-dancing Bridge camera so I am really pleased with what I managed to get.  Here are 10 photos from the city centre.

1 Bells on a stall at the German Market

2. Lights in New Street

3. The Christmas Tree inside the West Mall at The Bullring.  A sneaky snap as you're not supposed to take photos inside - a security risk apparently.

4. The bull with his new Christmas jumper

5.  More decorations in New Street

6. The German Market

7. The Council House and Victoria Square

8. Christmas Roundabout

9.  Roundabout outside the ICC

 10. And coming round the other side!

  2. I had to smile at the silvery bull - surely there is some kind of interesting metaphor going on - don't you think?

  4. Lovely to seee these photos of Birmingham. I visited the German Market a few years ago this has reminded me I should visit again. I like the bull dressed up in his jumper. Your photos came out well with a compact camera.
