Postponed from the 3rd December 2019 (due to the General Election) to the 14th January 2020. The annual Birmingham We Are event. A Celebration of a City with Community was held once again in the Banqueting Suite and Drawing Room.

At this end they were showing a slideshow presentation with our photos on Birmingham We Are.

Looking towards the Drawing Room. Packed at this point.

Jonathan Bostock introduces the Lord Mayor of Birmingham to some visitors.

Quite busy at both ends. Lots of tables with various Birmingham organisations with art on display.

The likes of the Canal & River Trust and Birmingham Museums Trust were represented in the Drawing Room.

Gloriana the Elizabethan dancers with their official photographer in his interesting looking costume. More on them in another post.

By this point, a few tables had been cleared, and many people had already left the Council House. At the far end of the Drawing Room was the gallery of photos by Birmingham's People with Passion (including my own).

One last look before leaving the Council House. Was a lot of standing around.

The Empty Streets of Birmingham on Christmas Day 2019

Being autistic has its advantages when it comes to having a special interest, mine is the city and photography. I went out at about midday into the city centre to see if I could get another set of 'empty city' photos like I did in 2011, and great medicine for my mental health it was! Here's a gallery of what I got, they had to be black & white, 28 photos in this post.
