August 19 is World Photography Day! Founded in 2009 by Australian photographer Korske Ara, World Photography Day celebrates shots taken all over the world and the positive change that can come from taking photos and sharing them with others.

 

I’m continually inspired by Local Guides around the globe who share their passions and experiences through photography. On Connect and Google Maps, you help guide people on where to go next.

 

This World Photography Day, I want to celebrate the amazing photos Local Guides like you have taken! Here are some of my favorites.

 

India
