Photo Friday by Karen Strunks

We’re going to try a new regular series on Fridays to make sure I don’t have to do too much work: Karen Strunks is a freelance photographer, who’s doing some really interesting things — her 4AM project especially — so every week she’s going to post one of her shots of Brum, and a little about it:

“The first image I have chosen was taken on a Saturday photo stroll around the city. There’s a walkway that goes over Queensway, and you have to walk up the steps to a bridge to cross the dual carriageway. The staircase isn’t the prettiest, but it is livened up by bright red railings, and of course this nice piece of graffiti. “Everyone loves a cuppa x”. Quite a British sentiment, and I like the added kiss at the end. I’m sure anyone reading this warming sentiment that it will look forward to putting the kettle on and putting their feet up with a nice cuppa when they get home.”

See more of Karen’s work at here website – she’s also trying to organise a flashmob.

    Great photo Karen, I’ve got a couple of photos of works by this graffiti artist, not sure of the name – AST, A57 – anyone know? I wasn’t too sure about it when I saw the cuppa one but they’re growing on me, I like the hot bath sticker.

    Photo Friday is a great idea Jon, more guest writers!

    Love it! Everyone does indeed love a cuppa, in fact I think I’ll go and make one right now :)

    Great shot, I think I know the walkway. Is it the one that goes into a building (sort of – the exterior cladding/windows)?

    Thanks for your comments :)

    Billy: I am not quite sure of the artist’s name. A friend suggested it could be ASI or AS1. Like the bath tub!

    Catnip: Hope you put your feet up whilst enjoying your cuppa ;)

    Steve: Yes, that’s the one :)
