Happy World Photography Day!

Strange how photography can play such a major part in our lives and take us to places we have never been and people we have never before met. And so it was yesterday as I took off for White Rock Lake with camera in hand and a collection of some little people.

I wandered the lake looking for potential photo ops and stumbled upon the Free Advice guy! This fella has been dispensing free advice on the west side of the lake every Sunday for the past 18 years. And you know me… I like free and stopped by to see what he had to say.

That’s when I spied this world emerging from the concrete and the little dog looking on. Yes! Bring out the little people!

And then this morning from the other side of the world… India to be exact, comes a message from a photo friend who shares the love of food photography wishing everyone a Happy World Photography Day!
Who knew? And why not?

Thank you Gaurav and the same back at ya!
To visit Gaurav’s photography blog, please go to: http://shuttertux.wordpress.com/2013/08/19/shoot-food-photographs-with-limited-resources/

So I wish all my photo friends and all the crazy women a Happy World Photography Day!
And remember… the deadline for shooting the “little people” challenge is tomorrow!

Now get out there and do what you love… shoot the world, make friends and have fun!

  1. This is a nice conceptual photo. I liked it. And it feels special to be a part of your network, Fay. May the coming year bless you with tons of beautiful photographs. Wishing all your readers, a Happy Photography Day! 🙂

    • Thank you so much Gaurav and thanks for letting me know that this is a special day for all of us who love photography! May you continue to capture delicious photos and share them with the world! Bon Appetit!

  2. What a very neat idea of a picture that coincides the World Photography Day. And how did you ever let that cute doggie to cooperate and stay still? I’m glad you finally found that fella that gives free advice. Was this picture his advice to you Lala? Although I doubt it. LOL.

    • It was absolutely a fluke the way this happened and then when Gaurav sent the thing about World Photography Day, I thought… it all fits… I’m going to post it! What a crazy world we live in!

      The Free Advice guy was fun! I must take Lucy to get some advice but I’m afraid it would be a very one-sided conversation. I’ll post a few photos tomorrow on CD.

    • BTW… the doggie is not real. He just looks real. I did a double-take when I walked over from the parking lot as I thought the dog was real and was afraid he might dart in front of a biker or a car. Silly me!

      • OMG. You got me there with the doggie. I thought he is real.

        Yes, it might not be a good idea to bring Lucy for some free advice. LOL.

  3. But Tessie… Lucy needs some advice. She needs some encouragement and I think Roddy might be able to help her. All she does is sit around. She needs to be out and about and having fun again!

  4. Fay,
    Love your creativity! What a wonderful photo for World Photography Day! The dog does look sooo real! Very very nice!
