NEW HASHTAG & SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT (read whole post!!) Are you an Instagramer of Birmingham looking for a way to share your photos from outside our fair city? Then why not use our new hashtag #igersbirminghamontour ? This hashtag is for you to share your shots of everything from a day trip out of the city (just like this weekend's instameet at Warwick Castle), to an adventure of a lifetime. This hashtag is also for you if live just outside the city and want to post shots of your area.
Each Sunday we'll repost our favourite #igersbirminghamontour shot as our PHOTO OF THE WEEK. Our first POTW is this great shot of Gwyrch Castle in North Wales.
Tying in very nicely with the launch of our hashtag is this opportunity that we've been offered by the airline BMI @bmiregional. To celebrate the launch of their new route from @BirminghamAirport to Nuremberg @airport_nue we've been offered a handful of free tickets on their first flight on Thursday 11th May!
If you'd like to join @bethastington of @igersbirmingham on this trip, email us asap. If more people message than we have spaces for, then we will pick names from a hat. When you return is up to you. We will be finding a hotel for Thursday night and then returning on the flight on Friday night, but you are welcome to stay until the next return flight on Sunday.
Met one of my photography heroes tonight, Vanley Burke. If you want to see some amazing photos and find out more about the people who make Birmingham what it is today please go and see the exhibition at Soho House, on now. (My quick snaps don't do it justice!) #igersbirmingham#brumisbrill#birmingham#vanleyburke
