, (PressExposure) April 07, 2009 -- A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the saying goes. With recent technologies such as camera phones and digital photography, and the boom in global tourism, people are now able to capture the world around them like never before. They are also taking more photos than ever before, not only to remember unique travel or life experiences, but also to share those experiences with family and friends. And thanks to the photo and travel community, www.mygreatworld.com, they can now share their images with the rest of the world too. The MyGreatWorld website is a unique visual database project aimed at capturing and documenting cities and locations around the world in photo format for others to view. Browse stunning, atmospheric and everyday photography of locations and landscapes from the four corners of the globe, either using the world map or search bar provided. The idea is that, as more pictures are added to the site, it will be possible to document the development or decay of some cities and locations over time, as well as understand the nature, industry, history and people of the area, giving a unique and intriguing window on the world we live in. Members of the MyGreatWorld community can upload their photos to the site to share with others providing a great way for artists and photographers to get noticed, or for travellers to share their experiences with friends.
Those who exceed 25 photo uploads will be awarded a 2-star rating in their personal profile and be given the ability to link to their external homepage. Further incentives are offered to those who upload even more pictures to the site.
There are so many wonderful images on this website that you could while away many an hour exploring the world in pictures, all from the comfort of your own armchair.
It is free to become a member of the MyGreatWorld community. Uploading and sharing is very easy on this user-friendly website and no personal information is required.
