TPS Outing

From Geoff Adams, Members’ Rep:

TPS outing this Sunday 25th August, Japanese Gardens 2-4pm.

This is an opportunity to photograph a young lady dressed in steam punk costume with the gardens as a backdrop (Thanks Elsa, I assume Dad has mentioned this by now).

If like me, you didn’t have a clue what this fashion trend or subculture was, here’s some information

This should be fun, and a great way to make different cultures blend (or clash).

This is a vital part of our local assistance and revenue raising efforts. It is important that we maintain our connection to this major photographic event, in our region.
