Birmingham Photographic Grid

The shopping centre outside of our hotel had this photographic exhibit displayed and I thought it was a neat concept.  In an attempt to accurately portray Birmingham life in a systematic way, places on a well-travelled bus route were used as subjects. As the website says, "The grid imposes a system that may sometimes locate the picturesque but is just as likely to find the industrial, the rugged, the new, old, boring, threatening or just ugly". 

After all, a city is made up of all of these things.
