Today, August 19th, is World Photography Day.  I’m pretty sure there isn’t a Hallmark card for today, although maybe there should be.  So don’t be too upset if you have never heard of World Photography Day or did not get an invitation to a big celebration in the mail.  It is one of the lesser known holidays.  This is just a day to celebrate photography which with a camera in almost everyone’s pocket now, tends to be taken for granted.  But in the grand scheme of things, it was not that long ago that photography was a rarity and considered a luxury.  So the purpose of today is acknowledge the role photography plays in our lives as both a moment capturer and an art form.  So get your camera out and take a photograph todorld Photography Day and the 1000 post anniversary of Shutter Mike, just a coincidence.

341 E. Camelback Rd., Phoenix, AZ

This building, designed by famous Phoenix architect Alfred Beadle, is classic Arizona mid-century modern architecture.  Or at least it was.  This photo was taken before they tore off the block facade in order to make the building much more “functional.” Sad, but still represents one of my favorite photography types, architectural.
