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.

Togo Betammariba Girl Portrait chosen for African Tuesday Top 5

Thanks to the guys from African Tuesday on Google+ who have picked another one of my submissions as their Top 5 favorite pic of the week (June 2nd).

The picture was taken somewhere in north Togo and portraits one of the Batammariba girls that was following around the house that we were allowed to view. The mud tower houses are called Takienta and are symbolic for this region in Togo and neighboring Benin.

Here is the Togo Betammariba girl pic chosen by Africantuesday:
