Coventry Road

This is Coventry Road in Small Heath, Birmingham.

It’s a place alive with variety. Today, I captured a small sample of this thanks to the kind people who allowed me to photograph their property.

I challenge you to find better value elsewhere.



This is Bull Ring outdoor market, also known as the Rag Market, on a crisp day a while ago. I love having a wander round and am often drawn to the fabric stalls. I get lost in all the colours, textures, and ribbons.

I have seen this place change immensely since my first visits as a child. Two of my most vivid memories include the time I walked around the indoor market with my fingers super-glued together in a Vulcan salute and the loud lady with bold make-up who sold crockery. I will never forget her bright pink lipstick or her voice.
