Oh how I love thee Unsplash. Unsplash is a celebration of photography, a resource of of free use-for-anything photos from around the world. I say 'photos' and not 'stock photos' as there's something a bit soulless about the word 'stock photo', like it was created to sell or for gain rather than for the love of it (is it only me that feels like that ?!)
Photographers share images on Unsplash, me included, to share the photo love about. For me personally I like to share images on there because if I've taken an image from a certain moment in time that made me happy it makes me feel good to know that other people might like it too, and take enjoyment from it. I love watching the journey of my images on there, for example when I added this floral photo, I saw Google alert after Google alert coming pinging into my inbox as it was shared and re-shared on Tumblr. It gave me the warm fuzzies to know that something I had taken was being seen so many times.
If you sign up here on Unsplash, you will receive 10 beautiful high resolution images every 10 days in your inbox. But there's many more beautiful images on Unsplash to discover so I'm going to be sharing my favourites each week here too, some old and some new.
