They say home is where the heart is.
But for some reason one may not be at home for a certain amount of time either because wanderlust got the better of them, like it did for us in our previous post, or it may be that duty or school called among various reasons.
Take my friends friends Slim, Kamal, Muchez, Danny, Jodie and more for example, miles away from home and they make the best of it-photography wise. Showcasing the beauty of the cities they call home.
So, why don’t we coin a new phrase today dear photogs, let’s say home is where the camera is…how about that? Yes? Awesome!
You may ask what this post is all about, here goes. Did you know, August 19th is World Photography Day. A day set to commemorate the invention of the daguerreotype, which was the first photo processing technique- in simple terms, the first film making process to be made for developing photographs.
Daguerreotype was invented by French artist and chemist Louis Jacques-Mandé Daguerre in the early 1830s. Since then we have made advancements beyond his imagination i believe.
Kamal is/was in Alberta, Canada,
Malimbika in Mtwara, the southern part of Tanzania,
and in Kenya, The Bongolese represent Tanzania as she uniquely and beautifully captures the different parts of Kenya that she has indulged in.
It is no lie that the best way to see the world is though photographs.
The first picture ever taken was in 1826 by Joseph Nicephore Niepce. It was of a window in his home Le Gras, France. This is why a camera is referred to as “The window to the world”
(Thank you Mr. Keyonzo– My photography lecturer I have not forgotten this)
You may or might already have noticed that we reference to Instagram mostly. This is because it has already brought about a community of enthusiasts who enjoy taking photographs and sharing it to the world in present times.
In light to this day where photography is appreciated, its not only just but right to look at how our skills have grown since and more so the community developed on instagram; the most popular photo sharing app.
“Just Keep Shooting”
Happy Photography Day to you!!
