 50/52, originally uploaded by ChrisSinn.

It’s time for a bit of Bratwurst!

It was a Flickrmeet weekend, and as the German market was in town, it was decided to have a combined day time/night time meet – a wander around the law courts followed by a spot of lunch and then off up to the sausage-fest.

Typically the days of low winter sun have disappeared and been replaced by the grey reality of a December in Birmingham, so I can’t say I felt the love whilst sheltering from the rain for the first half of the meet – but as the sun went down (I’m assuming it did, although I don’t think anyone witnessed it…) the lights went on and Birmingham shone. It is a lovely city, even without the market, and at night it is even better – there is just something about illuminated buildings that I love. The market is great too, and although photographically I’ve struggled in the past few years, this was much better, and pretty well attended by the Flickr group – the Floozie was lit up, as were the council buildings, and a couple of merry-go-rounds all added to the occasion – nice! I’m glad I carried that tripod around for the whole of the day, as it meant I was able to try some of the long exposure shots.

And the sausages are pretty good too!
