Digbeth is the new Shoreditch is a saying on the Internet. I have not been to Shoreditch for a long time and I know that Digbeth is modelled on itself not on any other town or city. It has been a while since I had been to Digbeth. Furthermore, I wanted to get there early so that I could see the pretty street lighting that I often see from the train in the morning. The cultural centre of Digbeth is the former Bird’s Custard Factory which was always awash with light. Now the surrounding roads such as Floodgate Street and Lower Trinity Street have street lighting that criss-crosses the road. It gives a nice effect and entices the visitor into the area to discover more about the charms of Digbeth.
I took my Canon camera with wide lens with me and also had my iPhone and Sony compact. The streets were relatively quiet with a few early workers out and about. I took a selection of pictures including the graffiti and the lights. I even walked into the centre of the Custard Factory to look at the sculptures and art work. It is always a rewarding experience moving around Digbeth during the early hours.
