Decided to put all my favourite COVID-19 lockdown dog walk photos up in one place. We are allowed out once per day for exercise so have been doing some walking through the streets and canal paths of Birmingham, in particular, the Jewellery Quarter.
All photos are taken with Samsung S10 usually while the dog is preoccupied or pulling trying to ruin the shot.
I’m really enjoying the walks and noticing more these days now stuck very local for the immediate future.
We cannot wait to get back to normal and be allowed to break up walkies in the Dog-Friendly pubs and restaurants of the city. Haircutting is now a case of getting a razor and going fully shaved, longing for a return to Barberology when this is over.
Dog Walk Photos
Another visit to the crypt at Warstone Lane graveyard, this time the clouds and blue skies made for a great photograph.
A new place for us to walk called Key Hill Cemetery which was beautiful with loads of bluebell flowers all over.
A beautiful morning at the church in St. Paul’s Square in the Jewellery Quarter. Nice colours in the trees and lots of daisys today.
A beautiful morning stroll to empty the dog so headed through the city centre before it gets busy. I think this might make a nice photo at sunrise on a clear day. This is St Martin’s in the Bullring Church.
As the rain arrives to dampen walkies we get a nice surprise of new arrivals on the canal. The Canada geese have a few cute yellow fluffy goslings. All very nice for now, I expect the gulls and heron will be licking their lips. Not looking forward to the gull chicks arriving, as that causes the parents to get aggressive and divebomb the dog.
The mallards I believe have a new brood of ducklings, very cute as we let them all jump in the canal before we advanced.
St Chads is the other cathedral in the city, St. Chads is a roman catholic cathedral made from red brick and has 2 distinctive towers above the entrance.
It was quiet before sundown out the front of Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery, so plenty of space to sniff about for puppy while I took some photos. What a contrast to when the Christmas Markets are in town.
A quiet Moor Street Station near the Bullring shopping centre while out shopping for supplies. M&S seem to be one of the more organised and pleasant places to food shop in the city at the moment.
Some of the high-rise buildings in Colmore row in the business district of the city while out buying dog and human food.
The statue called Floozy in the Jacuzzi near the museum. Wishing we had a hot tub or Jacuzzi at home.
Sunset again at Brookfield’s graveyard, wishing that The Rebel Chicken were open for some wings and Hop House 13.
The town hall looks very Roman, we are sure it will be even nicer when finished and the fences come down.
Centenary Square is good for a run around when quiet in the early evenings. This is The Hall of Memory Building with the library to the rear.
The sun going down on another lockdown day, beautiful place to watch the day end and the night begin.
St Paul’s Church in the Jewellery Quarter, a regular fixture on our potty walk schedule. Shame The Rectory isn’t open for an Amstel.
An empty Great Western Arcade shopping centre, missing visiting TabLites but hey ho they deliver to the door.
An interestingly decorated boat parked up at Aston Junction on the canal.
The canal path by the Gunmakers Arms a great pub with a brewery attached.
The Snowhill train station’s former entrance that has been preserved.
Brookfields cemetery in the Jewellery Quarter, a nice walk around a historic grave yard.
The lawn at St Philips Cathedral on Colmore row, great for a run around and a sniff.
A can of Tyskie Polish lager at the end of the Digbeth branch canal with a great view of the city skyline and Bullring.
The tram line at St Paul’s Station and skyline of Snowill.
