This photo really doesn’t do it justice. Taken from the office at about 07h40 this morning (with my phone), Tyseley Incinerator. On the way into work from a different angle, the smoke was a such a soft pink, set against a brilliant orange sky fading to warm blue, with a large neon sun just above the trees.
And from that same angle, there was the silhouette of the Small Heath Mosque. In the office they look miles away from each other. The two views of Modern Birmingham : Industry and Culture.
And actually, if you catch this at the right angle, the Clock Tower of Birmingham University is hiding behind this chimney. Like from the photocopier. If I ever change jobs I will miss this view.
It’s my city and I love it.
