World Toy Camera Day is an annual observance celebrated on October 20 of this year. Why alone to celebrate the professional cameras and the photos from it? World Toy Camera Day is a celebration that honors the outdated vintage toy cameras and its funny picture capturing capacity.
“There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are.” – Ernst Haas
History of World Toy Camera Day
Becky Ramotowski invented World Toy Camera Day (WTCD). She established the third Sunday of every October to mark the celebration of this day. The creator of the day took the idea from the World Pinhole Photography Day. She believed that there weren’t enough of terrifying nostalgic pictures on the web. To end it, she dedicated an entire website to the 120 and Polaroid film, low-fidelity, blurry picture-spewing cameras. Her idea was a worldwide annual event that uses toy cameras to shoot endless rolls of 120 and Polaroid film.
