How do you celebrate photography in your everyday life?
Held every 19th of August, World Photography Day is a celebration of photography as a powerful visual medium. It originated from the discovery of the Daguerreotype by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre. On August 19, 1939, the French government bought the patent for the Daguerreotype and declared it as a gift “Free to the World.”
In line with the momentous 175th year celebration of World Photography Day, we want you to share how you celebrate the gift of photography in your daily life through a short blog post. Also, include at least three of your snapshots that best illustrate this. The user with the best blog entry will win our grand prize of 30 piggies and a special award for his or her LomoHome!
