A picture is worth a thousand words – an adage that is particularly applicable when traveling. Photography dates back as far as the 4th and 5th centuries when Greek mathematicians like Aristotle began experimenting with pinhole cameras and in the 6th century the camera obscura was developed to project an image onto a wall which was then painted.

Camera technology advanced significantly in the 19th century with the introduction of Plate Photography, but things really developed (no pun intended!) with the invention of light sensitive film in 1885.

Photography was thrust into the digital age in the early 1980s but it wasn’t until 1995 when Nikon released the D1 DSLR camera. Much like other technology, cameras progressed quickly and most of us now have a fairly decent one in our phones.

Photography, in our opinion is one of the most inspirational mediums known to man, each week we’ll be bringing you some of the best images we can find, we hope you enjoy them!
