Happy World Photography Day!

World Photo Day-2011.jpgIt just kind of sneaks up on you, doesn't it? It's August 19th again which means it's time to celebrate another World Photography Day.

"Next time you're flicking though photos from your last holiday, remember that there was once a time when photography didn't exist," says Koske Ara, a driving force behind World Photography Day. "A photograph isn't 'just' a picture and isn't 'just' art. It's a memory frozen in time, emotions and all," he adds.

World Photography Day is about celebrating photographs, what they mean, what they can do and appreciating just how special it is that we can casually snap a shot of anything we want.

Hope you picked up a gift for your loved one and favorite digital camera website writers - a Leica S2 would be fine.
