Dear avid photographers
Our world is both diverse and exciting. What do people do at breakfast, at mid-day or at night in different parts of the world? The World Photo Day 2005 Project aims to reveal the way people live throughout the world. It will show the different life styles and practices of people.
This project's intent is to get the people of the world to see what each other do on a typical day. It will also reveal that although our situations may be different, we all share very many common traits. Hence on one specified day in 2005, photographers from all over the world will capture what people do as they go about their daily business. To help to promote World Photo Day NASA will ask the crew of the International Space Station to take a photo of earth from the space station as well.
