This is an event that began in 2010 and, since then, thousands of photographers from around the world have uploaded thousands of images that show perspectives of their world. Anyone who wants to participate has to first create an account and then will be able to upload their photographs.
Anyway, considering that it is World Photo Day started me thinking about my photographs and possibly sharing some of them with you. I usually show you pictures of my garden or of birds that I've seen, but here are just a few from one of my favorite trips that we took a couple of years ago to Big Bend National Park in West Texas.
The park features a stark and rugged but beautiful landscape with mountains, desert, and views into Mexico across the Rio Grande River. I took hundreds of photos. Here are just five.

|This "window" in the mountains shows the view into Mexico on the other side.|
|This formation is called "donkey ears."|
|Santa Elena canyon with the Rio Grande flowing through it.|
|Then, of course, there is this handsome hunk, not a native to this landscape, but doesn't he look right at home?|
