World Photography Day 2011


All the shutter bugs... Wish you all a very happy clicking on 'World Photography Day'.

On August 19th, 1839, French government announced the 'Daguerreotype' photography process as a gift to the world which was developed by Louis Daguerre few months back. Daguerreotype process is considered to be the first practical process of photography.
So a group of photographers, some 20 years back started celebrating the day as 'Birthday of Photographs'... and so the origin or 'World Photography Day'.
