The World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”. Photography has the ability to tell stories and inspire people. It has changed the way we see the world and gave us the ability to share our perception on the world around us. Thank you WordPress for being the best medium to share our creativity. And Thank you photography for helping me in getting hundreds of friends across the world without any barriers..
