Photography does matter! It certainly does to me; it’s a very big thing indeed!
I’m thinking you’re not too different from me on that score. Otherwise, you’d likely not be reading this post.
I keep my eye on a couple of calendars that track “National This Day” or “World That Day” and I think that’s a good thing. A lot of good conversation starters. And resources like that can certainly generate plenty of material for bloggers like yours truly.
A handful of those special days are really big for me.
World Photography Day, observed on August 19th each year, is one.
You might wonder how much importance I truly place on it, being as how the post is going up with a few scant minutes in the designated day.
That’s just because I had a distraction or two going on today. And because I’m of the better late than never persuasion, here’s my tardy post where I try with 200 words and two photos to impress upon a handful of readers just how amazing the taking and sharing of photographs is!
The banner photo is one of which I am especially fond. That one was taken at Moss Park in southeast Orlando back in 2016.
And this one here, beneath the text you’re reading now is another favorite. I took it in Orange County’s Trimble Park in 2017. I haven’t published it anywhere before.
Enjoy photography today! Any and every aspect of it.
And if you’re inclined to share some of your photos with us, that would be a wonderful way to mark the occasion. Whether you “beat the clock” or not!
