World Photography Day is celebrated every year on August 19. It is a day to recognise the importance of photography in our world. Pictures are a way to preserve memories, to capture a fleeting moment in time. In fact, it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. World Photography Day is a day to appreciate the work of photographers, to encourage photography as both a hobby and a profession and to learn more about this craft. On the occasion of World Photography Day, professional as well as amateur photographers share their favourite pictures on social media.
