255. 169th World Photography Day

Posted Date: 19th August

Celebrations of the 169th World Photography Day on Tuesday the 19th of August 2008. Members of NFPJ are conducting a very short rally and starting from Shanti Batika, Ratna Park and through Bhadrakali, Shaid Gate, Nepal Airlines Corporation, Bir Hospital and to be concluded at Shanti Batika.

The mask that they were wearing looked like cameras with their faces taking the place of lenses which I must say was a noble idea. Everyone interested were welcome to participate on this wonderful day. This shot was taken while on the way to Office at Shanti Batika.

  1. Journalistic instinct in Luna allowed her to react in time appropriately and how such a happening became highlighted. Otherwise such happenings would have slipped almost everyone but the most observant. I am pretty sure many EU viewers have no idea of World Photography Day which is being celebrated on 19 of August every year around the world. So my warm pat on her back for posting picture (despite its quality) to make viewers of EU aware of the event. It’s Citizen Journalism and we (photojournalist) call it, the right person at the right time.

    Well now I am getting real suspicious, finally you guys going to know me by my real identity. Humm… sound interesting. And dear Luna I feel honored to have you tag me as a ‘Guru of photography’ but I am just a Shutterbug, photo commentator of EU. Thank you for this RESPECT. πŸ™‚

  2. DreamSky,
    Nice line ….”Shutterbug nearly enclosed inside loona’s shutter” πŸ™‚

    This is an awesome coincidence… And I am pretty stunned by the thought….that I was unknowngly taking shots of Shutterbug…. the Guru of Photography… :mrgreen:

    And Nischal dai, thanks for the link. Wish, D2 Pro Photographers also should have participated in the rally. πŸ™‚

  3. Happy photography day!

    My expression was like this -> πŸ™‚ while reading above comments – Shutterbug nearly enclosed inside loona’s shutter πŸ˜€

  4. Well, Shutterbug, I did take few other shots too and who knows I might have captured you in my other shots :mrgreen:
    Happy Photography Day to you too Shutterbug. Actually, I was so thrilled to see you guys with those interesting masks and wanted to click more of the pictures. Since, it was just a mobile camera, the picture quality ain’t that good. At that instant, it didn’t struck in my mind that you would be there. Otherwise, I would have taken more shots. πŸ˜‰

  5. Happy 169 World Photography Day! And how could I miss covering such a valuable day. Luna just missed me having within the frame by few seconds. πŸ˜‰ I was few step ahead of it. Let me post one picture that I took this morning to wish you all Photographers of EU. HAPPY PHOTOGRAPHY DAY!!
