Well today, August 19th, has been declared World Photo Day. Why World Photo Day?
World Photo Day is an international photography event on August 19th that celebrates the passion for photography in our communities. In a world where millions of pictures are uploaded every minute, World Photo Day is inspiring thousands of photographers across the planet to share a single photo with a simple purpose: To share their world with the world. From everyday life to incredible landscapes, our global gallery is an evolving mosaic of images captured by photographers of all skills levels living in a diverse range of countries and cultures. No matter who you are, where you are or what equipment and skills you have, World Photo Day can help open your eyes to the possibilities of photography and enable you show the world as you see it.(From the WorldPhotoDay.com website)
