Welcome to Birmingham, B29

posted by James Thornett
Hello, welcome and bonjour!

This is the new website/blog/portal for the postcode district of B29, Birmingham, England, UK.

It was primarily born from a desire to catalogue, photographically, the diverse nature of a postcode that I have now lived within for a cumulative total of 8 years.

At the time of writing (13th August 2007) there is nothing to show but a web address (this one - www.birminghamb29.com), a flickr group, and this single blog post.

However, the hope is that this thing will now begin to grow into something much more. At the very least I hope we can show, through the community of photographers using Flickr, what an amazingly interesting, varied and exciting area B29 is... and maybe we can do a whole lot more interesting stuff as well.

And maybe, just maybe, there'll be a few more postcode districts across the UK (there are 2,900 of them apparently) that'll decide to follow suit, and then things really could get interesting!

take care for now - hopefully plenty more to come soon.

    Interesting!

    I've just moved to B23 and was thinking of starting something similiarly hyper-local. I'll let you know if I do anything about it! :)

    How very meta of you! :D Funky concept for a site, microblogging... Maybe I should've started off small like you and gradually upscaled, but oh well - too late now!
