Diaristic Photography Journal about Birmingham, the United Kingdom.
Like any international student, the first places I get to know in a city are the school, the nearest clinic, the police station and the shopping centre. My family and I have realized that we have been living a long period of waiting without enjoying our life.
To get out of this small circle we planned to get lost without direction in the streets to explore. Little by little, we needn't to use the GPS device to lead us home. So, my advice to all expatriates, the more you get lost, the more you know your city.
For me, Birmingham is too beautiful to stay at home.
