Celebrating 177 Years of Photography
Today is World Photo Day, marking the invention of photography. Here’s to the images that give us new perspective on the world, bringing us closer together.
The image above is said to be the first ever photograph; but who knows? But when we look at it we can only just begin to understand where it has come from, AND more importantly where it is going. When we consider how it is used today, and how it was considered to impact the lives of the future way back in the 1800’s. Now, you as the Kids With Cameras can have some idea of the force that drives you to aspire t0 take better photos. The future can only be different to what we see today, and the camera will see it for all the future to see.
take your own special photo to celebrate the event.
Submit by Friday the 26th of August and gain 500 REWARD POINTS.
SEPTEMBER WILL BE A BIG MONTH WITH THE ARRIVAL OF THE NEW CAMERA CHALLENGE.
