World Photo Day

Today is the worldwide celebration of photography…

What incredible advances have been made since the film days…Remember bringing in those rolls of film to get developed, paying money, opening the packages and getting bummed when pics came out under or over exposed? Did you ever process your own film in the dark room? I remember shooting slides for magazines when I first started out. Now they sit in little boxes in the closet. Digital changed our world overnight. Now we get immediate feedback. And cameras keep getting better. Who thought ISOs could climb so high?

I love how photography allow us to ~~~

record adventures…


like skiing to an ice cave in Norway with Dave and my father

or boating to a remote island in Kuna Yala, Panama


create magic…

or capturing northern lights in Abisko, Sweden

preserve memories…

Wouldn’t life be dull without the ability to capture snapshots of life–whether on your iphone or expensive lenses–and share them with the rest of the world?
