The World Photography Organisation (WPO) announced, just a couple of days ago, the countdown to the close of the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards, one of the world’s leading photographic awards programmes. It is also proud to name Heathrow Express as the official travel partner for the awards and the World Photo London festival in April 2013. There is just one month remaining for professional and amateur photographers from around the world to select and enter their best images of the year. All category winners across the awards will receive the latest digital imaging equipment from Sony. Well...those are just the details for anyone interested in participating. But for all the rest of us let's take this opportunity to celebrate great captions from all around the world. Pictures of poverty and joy, loneliness and sarrow. The picture above was taken in Bangladesh. Bangladesh is known for its poverty and natural disasters, but did you also know that according to many surveys, Bangladesh is one of the happiest countries of the world? As everyday people smile at the camera and reveal themselves, we all feel blessed for living, struggling, loving, sharing this world's beauties. Enjoy these days of Christmas, dear friends. Life goes on and everything is just gonna be ok! As long as we have each other!
