Purpose, passion, perspective

Today is World Photography Day!

To have purpose, passion, and passion… That’s life!

Share one photograph of yours with the world. Starting from today you have one week to submit one of your images, and possibly the story behind it, with the world.

Above is my contribution. It reflects purpose, passion, and perspective to me.

Purpose – a sled dog team training for a big race

Passion – you have to have passion to be a musher, maintaining your own and the dogs motivation throughout the year

Perspective –  my view, with focus on the lead dogs, capturing (with luck) a moment of power and intensity…

The date behind World Photo Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.

In 2009, Korske Ara, a passionate young photographer from Australia launched the World Photo Day Project with the dream to unite local and global communities in a worldwide celebration of photography.

Today, we can share memories across the globe in seconds. Photography is an invention that has revolutionized the way we see the world. We can visit places without leaving our home. We can share adventures with friends in another city and we can watch grandchildren grow up thousands of kilometers away.

There was a time when photography didn’t exist.
