Birmingham in Feltipography

As well as celebrating Birmingham on this blog and through my photos on Flickr,, I also like to use the challenge of Instagram to show my own perspective on Greater Birmingham.  Instagram, a portmanteau of Instant Telegram, has the challenge of confining it's photos to a square shape similar to a Polaroid image.  This challenge leads to an almost intimate relationship between you and your subject.  The Guardian recently listed the city photographers on instagram to follow,, and they like me show a very personal take on their home.

The following collages from my instagram, feltipography, show my recent instagram pictures and my very personal take on Birmingham.  I find the city a never ending canvas in which to capture the grain of a city that lives it's city motto of Forward.

You can follow me on Instagram as feltipography or going to the website,
