Be a part of the world today, share a photograph.
There are so many cool people in this world, like painters, musicians, photographers and many others, who create stuff and share it with the rest of the world. We should be thankful for what they do, as we get to have a lot of beautiful things to see, to listen or to post on Facebook.
A few years ago on the Internet appeared some really awesome images, that seem to be taken from the space. I loved the most, the one with the North American continent. When you look at it for the first time, you may think it was taken from the satellite and that it shows the light pollution that blights America. Actually the picture it is showing the social network usage of the people who live there, it is like a map. You get to see red dots that represent Flickr pictures, blue dots, which are tweets and white for the both. The East Coast looks almost white, because there are millions of people, who take beautiful pictures, post and share them with their friends, strangers and the rest of the world. If you look at the map of New York, you get to see that Manhattan is almost white, because there are so many New York photographers or tourists with cameras that make pictures and share them, using social networks. This map is a picture that shows how common the interests of the people are.
The 21st century has changed photography. A picture that is taken right now in Mexico can be seen by some Polish guys in Warsaw, within seconds. This is the power of technology and the desire of the photographers and regular people with cameras on their phones, to share photographs. Why do we care so much about posting pictures with almost everything that takes part in our life? It is simple, people love beautiful images that express happiness and give a sense of better representation of what is really going on. You simply cannot post a status, saying that you are eating a cupcake without adding to it a picture of the delicious treat.
Sharing is caring and you may think that you don’t care about the others, but that’s what you really do, when you post a picture. This is the world today, the world where we take lots of photographs and we simply adore them.
