Celebrate World Photo Day!

Don't let inclement weather keep you in!

Today is World Photo Day! It marks the date when the first practical photographic process was released from it's patent. The process was the Daguerreotype, invented by Louis Daguerre in 1837. Two years later, on August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and made it freely available to the world as a gift.

So, take a moment today to create an image to honor that gift to the world and bring it to our next meeting on September 10. We'll take a couple of the most popular and post them here. But, the image must have been taken today only!

Don't wait, get up and away from your computer, grab your camera and get busy!
