On Sunday we were meant to take part in a studio session in Birmingham with a company called Ikon Studio. We got this through Groupon. All I can say is “What a scam”! We turned up for 11am start. The door was locked. There were around 9 of us all waiting. Others had tried to contact the studio but to no avail. On checking his website, this had totally changed since the beginning of the week and now resembled a movie review site. We have since complained to Groupon and ask for a full refund. When my partner and I went on a 2 day break to Llandudno earlier in the week, also organised through Groupon, the evening meal was the WORST I HAD EVER TASTED! So I’m not expecting much. Clearly when the owner doesn’t show. I’m considering unsubscribing to Groupon. It’s like cheap tat from a seaside gift shop. So instead we went into Birmingham City Centre for some urban photography and made a day of it. What fun! We must come back when the light’s better as we’ve marked some very nice locations.  Below are some images I took from the day’s urban photowalk.
