The reason I set up the Gallery all that time ago was because I love photographs. I love taking them, looking at them, discovering new ways of taking them but most of all I love sharing them.
And next week there is a day when everyone who loves photography will be joining in too. For next Tuesday it is World Photo Day when people all over the globe give a little glimpse of the world they live in.
It’s about celebrating photography, visiting all corners of our country, the globe, from the comfort of our living room. It’s about showing just how awesome photography is.
I’ve featured World Photo Day for a couple of years now and they’ve been kind enough to quote me on their website, such is my fandom!
So this week the Gallery theme is: My World Photo Day.
Think about what photography means to you. Maybe use a favourite photo, or a photography skill you’ve just mastered. Pick a photo that reflects what World Photo Day means to you.
The Gallery started back in 2010 when I kicked it off for the first time with this post: Photo Gallery Week 1. There were loads of comments but when I moved this blog over to WordPress, Intense Debate ate them all up. But suffice to say some of you guys who still join in today were back there with me on that first week. And that is just amazing!
I set the Gallery up because I love photography. And I wanted to give everyone else an outlet to share and encourage and write really interesting posts around them.
And it has always been about being part of a community of like-minded people. It’s about sparking your imagination, being inspiring – and inspiring others.
But remember, you will get out of The Gallery what you put in, so try to visit as many of the other entries as you can, say hi, discover new people, welcome them in when they discover you, be generous with your comments.
