Happy #WorldPhotoDay And Look What I Found

Today is World Photo Day. Yay. Snap. Snap.
But wait, you might wonder, I’m taking photos 365 days a year; what’s so special about August 19th?

Today is about sitting down and honoring all those visual storytellers who share the passion to communicate through this powerful medium and who strive to inspire and educate about wildlife conservation, the ecological crisis or social injustice (just to name a few examples).

Today is about sitting down and putting the people behind the camera in the right focus.

Thanks to the Social Media hashtags #WorldPhotoDay and #WorldPhotographyDay you can easily browse worldwide contributions shared by international photographers and associations today. Here are my favorites so far:

Do you have some #WorldPhotoDay favorites to share? Which ones made you laugh, think, cry?

French Communities On Instagram

After announcing that I moved to France, it seemed like a no-brainer to list worthwhile Instagram accounts that focus on “la joie de vivre” in this part of the world. Please see this post as a sequel to “New Zealand Communities on Instagram” and “Australian Communities on Instagram”. As done before, I recommend checking out the following accounts to learn about stunning travel locations, ideal photo spots, or to connect with the locals.

The hashtag behind each linked Instagram account is the official hashtag you should use if you aim to get featured and grow your audience.

Tip: Don’t forget about the emoji hashtag with the French Tricolore
