Great post – Thank you for compiling it.
Great photographers and amazing shots of everyday life.
Street photography….nothing quite like it!
Thank you for pointing me toward this group of bloggers!
Truly cool showing that we’re all really the same.
Wow, fantastic photos! I really would like to be in all those places!

My photoset got featured :D Thank you WordPress!
All the photographs are awesome, my favorite is the one with the woman with vegetables in front of her. The chillies are yummy.
This was super interesting. I felt like I was present in each of those photos. This is an awesome project.
The one with the dog was funny. You need some cool pictures from my country Honduras.
What a wonderful jaunt around the world. I do wish I could actually make some of these travels, but right now if it cost a nickle to go around the world, I couldn’t get out of sight!
This was amazing! Thanks for putting this together. You’ve inspired me to put together something like this from my trip to the Caribbean last year.
It’s interesting what came to mind when looking at these pics. I live in Vancouver where we have a large immigrant population, so seeing these pics was like looking into 12 different people’s realities even though we live here in Canada side by side…hmmm
Great photos. I’m always amazed at how third world entrepreneurs manage. There’s a guy with shop in the space between buildings. It doesn’t even look like an alley. And the lady selling vegetables on the street — nothing. No tables, doors, cash register.
The human spirit to build something and make it grow and thrive is like a seed. Toss it anywhere and with just a little spot of soil, sun and water it will sprout and grow.
Very interesting collection of pictures. I love traveling, it keeps me connected to the our great big world.
Thank you very much for featuring my photograph among so many great shots, Krista.
Delighted to find my locksmith on this list!! Many thanks Krista!! :-)
I need to point out a small error though….this was shot in Kolkata and not in Delhi.
Lovely. The images all capture things that feel familiar even in their ‘foreign -ness’.
What a groovy way to showcase the content of different blogs. From time to time you could showcase different themed content. Examples are endless but could, for example, include mountains or seas and oceans.
I enjoyed the trip. Thanks for sharing.
I <3 Photography!
This is awesome! Very interesting.
Thanks for including my image! Great set of photos!
To me as a photographer, it is a pleasure to be in that kind of journey. Brilliant selection, regards.
Nice flight for the eye!
That was wonderful! So fun to travel so far in a few minutes, and all the shots were really interesting!
Weeee! What a ride, thanks Krista! Great choices, and while I love the wind-blown dog (of course), Richard’s portrait blew me away. Wow!
That was an amazing photo trip. Thanks for the cool update.
Love this post and the amazing photography featured. I would love to see this as a regular WP feature. Lovely!
I love seeing how other people earn a living around the world. It takes me out of my little box and lets me dream…
That is a pleasant surprise! You’ve done a fantastic job. I am glad because the image of my native country appeared in your writing!
Normal day to day stuff is more attractive than staged photography!
I love how despite all that’s wrong with the world, people are smiling and getting on with life. The human spirit is fantastic.

Glad to be a part of this trip ;-)
Really nice shots! Really captures the culture, the life and highlights of each major location.
Daily activities photography, I love it :)
Beautiful photos of normal daily activities. Watching them makes me realize how similar all human beings are despite our geographic differences. They make me feel part of a worldwide family.
Great shots!!! a real pleasure for eyes and mind.
It is so hard in photography to represent a whole country or even a specific idea or ideal in one picture. Your pictures are very good and thought provoking, so I guess they hit the mark you were shooting for, I would look forward to seeing photo essays, using your own shots, where you are telling a story or supporting something you are passionate about. Thanks for the Post. DON
Amazing photo trip!
Love this , traveling from the comfort of my living room . How wonderful the world of technology taking each of us on a perfect journey . thank You for this. :)
So are people of African descent and Africa not a part of the world? Why aren’t there any representations of Africans in these 12 photos around the world? The picture in this post of Frankfurt, Germany is just of a dog. You really included a picture of a dog but not any black people? Not just Asians and white people populate this planet.
This post makes me want to go EVERYWHERE and see EVERYTHING!
It is amazing. I love traveling and these photographs give a glimpse of all those places. Thank you for this compilation, it truly felt like a trip around the world.
I stumbled upon this amazing post. Thank you WordPress.
Photos can tell great stories.
This is amazzing !
Incredible. Love the imagery and contrast.
This is so cool!
Love your photos and stories behind it..I’m inspired!
Check out street photography in Iran, captured on a peace-building trip.
very, very, very great! Good vibes from brazil for you
Very cool daily slice of life. Nice to have “street” perspective of our global citizens…
All of those photos are amazing :)
The world we live in is indeed a beautiful place.
This was very interesting, and I learnt a lot from it
Beautiful photos with a unique perspective. What an interesting way to capture different pieces from around the world! And just a small amount of supplemental text needed for context – photos really can speak for themselves.
beautiful pics…….the first one is so vibrant with color
Disappointed because there was no post on Africa in the compilation.
The photography is amazing!
This is awesome! I love how different each one is, yet so the same.
