World Photo Day is an international photography event on August 19th that celebrates the passion for photography. World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic process developed by Joseph Nicephore Niepce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On January 9, 1839, The French Academy of Sciences announced the daguerreotype process. A few months later, on August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.

On this World Photo Day I am sharing some of my photos of how I see the world through my lens.

Boy and  his water buffalo
Photography changes the way you see things..
Life of Migrants. (Overseas Filipino Workers in Singapore,  hanging around in the Merlion Park during their day off).
Street Children of Cebu, Philippines. ( Took this photo during our photowalk organized by Scott Kelby WorldWide Photowalk). I am humbled and honored that in my own little way I was able to make them smile by a click of my shutter. Say Cheese!

Man and His Tricycle.  Took this photo during our photowalk organized by Fujifilm Philippines

I want to travel the world and I want to feel the anonymity of being in a foreign city and being surrounded by hundreds of people who are going in a hundred different directions.
