I see there are only 4 entries, so far, to the photo competition this week.
The subject is glass, any glass.
There is really no viable excuse for anyone with a camera failing to have a go this week, it's GLASS, see it - photograph it - upload it. Simples.

We all know that you haven't been feeling well. don't let it worry you. We know you are a stalwart of the photo competition, I'm sure it wasn't you Volty was urging on.

What's your take on this scaffolding round Harborne clock tower Phil.

Well what do you expect from Birmingham City Council, "good business practice" that'll be the day. The moron who put this out to tender probably thought that the £12,000 per week for the scaffold rental was the price for the job.

Perhaps if BCC had kept the building in good repair instead of letting it get into this state then it wouldn't have come to this and they could still be getting some use out of it or a rental income at least.

Anybody with an ounce of sense would have first found out how long the scaffold was likely to be needed for and if as I suspect it is an indeterminate length of time then the scaffold should have been purchased and a firm hired to erect it, I'm sure they would have had no trouble in selling the scaffold on at the end of its use.

I could probably show you half a dozen listed buildings around Birmingham that are in the same state with scaffolding around them not to hold them up, but to protect the public from falling debris. I think this is Birmingham's policy toward listed buildings now at least those ones that they no longer wish to be associated with. I think they just want them to fall down and be done with.

The photo is out of todays Birmingham Mail

That's really funny Signman, even Harry and Ronnie had trouble getting past the dongle joke.
