Happy World Photography Day!
For blippers it’s “Photography Day” every day, but today is a great opportunity to celebrate this fantastic medium that has changed our lives.
Our ability to record a moment in time in print and more recently in electronic form has arguably been one of our most significant inventions and touches our lives every single day.
Whether we are recording world events, our children growing up, family gatherings or an historical record, photography is now accessible to so many more people than during those early days.
There are many places on the internet where you can read about how Louis Daguerre created and experimenting with photography. After combining chemicals and silver plates, he came up with the daguerreotype process and patented it in 1839 as a “gift to the world”.
Although it was our love of photography that brought many of us to Blipfoto, we’re pretty sure that it’s not the main reason we are all still here. Through the ups and downs or our daily lives, Blipfoto has been a little haven where we can save our daily photo and see a snapshot of everyone else’s day.
We have thought of a few ways we can all celebrate World Photography Day together:
