It’s World Photography Day, and I didn’t realize it, or knew about it, until I logged onto Facebook this morning. Yay! I’m glad to know that there’s a celebration out there for a great form of art.
If you pop on over to the World Photography Day website, you can learn more about this momentous occasion, and upload a photo from your corner of the world. I uploaded the photo above from the Kissel Hill wildflower field.
Today, really is the 177th anniversary of the discovery of modern photography. On August 19, 1839, the French government released the patent for Daguerreotype, where modern photography comes from. Cool, huh?
Also, I can’t believe I haven’t done this before, but as a celebration and as a gift to those out there, here’s an e-book of some of my early photographs. I put it together a while ago, and had to update some info, but, it otherwise, chronicles my photographic journey as a child and into early adulthood.
