Aston Parish Church

Near the Aston Villa Stadium - Birmingham is this lovely church. If I heard right, the first church was built at the same place in 1086 and was rebuilt in 1776, and the current building or the body in 1879 leaving the tower to be the only remaining part from the 1776 medieval building.
Such a love piece of history and architechture.. I went there late evenning to capture the building in the light of the dusk, so I really couldn't get much of the finer details, which I should do sometime later.. :)

Witton Cemetery Chapel

well snowy UK was quite the thing past week... I myself was in London visiting friends and got stuck there without transport. I had to get my ass back to Birmingham for work on Monday but everything was chaos in London, all buses were completely stopped, most tubes were not working. so I ended up stranded in London. Thankfully my friend decided that he'll drive me to Birmingham. it was around 8.30 PM when i reached here. and well the snow fall was not that bad here.

And next morning I was walking around, enjoying the snowy landscape when I stepped in to the witton cemetery, which is quite close by to where I live, and caught this...

It was quite a sight to be seen. Nikon D60, 18-55 VR lens. (18mm wide end) shutter - 25/1000, F-10, ISO 100. and of coz with a wee bit of post editing.
