Over a century ago there was a growing number of magazines published throughout the world. There was an increased demand for photographic illustrations for the magazines to be competetive. With time the cameras developed and became lighter, cheaper and easier to use. We all know that was only the beginning, as lenses, motor drives, electronic flash and things like auto-focus developed in the 1960s and into the digital era, with all its potential. Just imagine what the Internet has done to things like deadlines for a photographer. No more time wasted in a dark room full of chemicals, with an uncertain outcome. Fast forward to today and we have another Photo Of The Day, from a remote location in Senegal.
