The Photo Gallery: Week 71

Hello and welcome to week 71 of The Gallery.

So, today is World Photography Day. A day for celebrating photography and remembering just how ruddy special a photo can be.
And I think we should all pay attention to this quote on the official website:

“Today, we take our photographs for granted. But next time you’re flicking though photos from your last holiday, remember that there was once a time when photography didn’t exist. A time when those precious moments couldn’t be captured, uploaded and shared”.
Imagine that. Life before photographs. Urgh, shudder!

So in celebration, and to make sure as many people get out their with their camera today (I’ll accept this weekend if you’re busy), this week’s theme is: World Photography Day.


It must be a photo from today (or the weekend). Make it a photo to treasure for generations to come; family life, a moment, a precious family member frozen in time, a day out.
Let’s remember how bloody brilliant photographs are. Go that extra mile and really try to take a cracker.
Then show it off here.

Remember, The Gallery isn’t about technically brilliant photos. It’s about rediscovering photos; both old and new.
It’s about finding excuses to use them again, sparking your imagination, inspiring.
And absolutely ANYONE can join in.

Come back on Wednesday to add your link when The Gallery post goes up. Then visit as many of the other entries as you can to see what they’ve come up with.
The link stays open for a week so it doesn’t matter if you can’t post on Wednesday.

Say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you.
You will get out of this what you put into it.
Appreciate the wonderful words and photos that are opening themselves up to you.
The link stays open until the following Tuesday, so don’t worry if you don’t manage to post your photo on Wednesday.
