Join us on a short but amazingly diverse and colorful tour of the world in photos, courtesy of the amazing photographers on WordPress.com.
Around the World in 12 Photos
We’re beyond proud that incredibly talented photographers around the world choose to showcase their photos on WordPress.com.
Pack your virtual bags and join us on a turbo trip from Bangkok to Brisbane and from Kolkata to Los Angeles (with a few stops in between) as we explore the wonders of the street photography tag on WordPress.com. Be sure to fasten your seatbelt and review the in-flight safety features of our turbocraft before we taxi for takeoff.
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.
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
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.
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.
