    Visited by myself after a golden window of opportunity showed itself for the rooftop of the second highest building in birmingham. (not counting bt tower because technically that's a mast :thumb )

    Some history pinched off wiki.
    Only had my film camera, and once again, the dev's arent very good. I will be returning with a decent camera one evening.

    Lots of the floors are vacant. Most of them look like this.

    ^ bit harsh!

    Personally I really like your shots, looks like they were taken in the 80s which isn't a bad thing as far as I'm concerned, makes a change from the usual :thumb

    I didn't say they weren't good shots, they are. But that's either 20 year old film or developed by cowboys.
