YPS Sunday walkabout  

Although not part of our varied summer programme it was suggested by Bill D'Arcy that he'd like to try a photowalk around the Library of Birmingham Area. So a few of us headed out on a Sunday morning stroll. It was a relaxed occasion shooting owls to architecture for a hour and half.

We are looking to do similar walks in and around the city, so if you are interested in coming along please contact the club for more details.

A small selection of images are available to view in the YPS Events section of the gallery

We are sorry to announce the sad loss of long-time president and member of YPS, John Bate. John was well known and liked throughout the Birmingham and West Midlands photographic community and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew him. The club extends its sincere condolences to John's family and friends.

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of one of the club's long-standing members, Bryan Parker. The club extends its sincere condolences to Bryan's family and friends.
