Barber Institute photo published in Birmingham Mail newspaper

Following my first instameet photowalk last weekend, two of my pictures were featured in the online edition of the Birmingham Mail Newspaper and followed up by one in the print edition.

Having recently set up my instagram account hauzars_lichtbildbude it was a nice experience to see around 70 fellow photographers show up at the Birmingham University to explore the architectural highlights. The featured photos and some of my other pictures taken can be seen here in this gallery.
