I was in Birmingham a wile back, whilst I was there I had a little bit of time to take some photographs from the China Town area.
The ones I have selected have been cropped to focus on certain forms, colour and space, I have been doing this on and off for a wile now and I think it helps me really focus more specifically on interesting parts within a picture. Perhaps in a way it helps highlight the atmosphere of the space and place. As these pictures are taken from China Town red seems to stand out quite a bit in some of them and this seems to influence the way this built environment is seen. It helps add more meaning, creates character and associations to identity.
