Selfridges, Birmingham

ND – The Golden Hour, not Blue

The iconic Selfridges building, part of Birmingham’s Bullring shopping center redevelopment in the early 2000’s is no stranger to the web. I’m not the first person to photograph it, nor will I be the last.

It’s a very striking shape and style that gives you a smile and a “Wow” when you see it, but also lets you wonder how it will age, and what others in 30 years will think of it as 30 years after it’s predecessor’s rise all people wanted was for it to go.

I currently love this building because every time I go there I find something new; a position, direction, lighting, whatever. I was there this past weekend and again found something, very different from the photos below, that I will endeavour to post later on.

Designed by the (sadly) recently disbanded Future Systems, the Selfridges section of the Bullring is undoubtably the most striking element of the entire development and makes no apologies, standing proud with its almost punk attitude to its neighbouring siblings.

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
