Finally, a day we can all get behind.

Photographers around the world are celebrating World Photo Day on Friday.

Social media users are encouraged to tag their photos #worldphotoday to share them with the world. There are currently thousands of photos tagged with the hashtag, but we picked out some of our favorites to showcase below.

Happy Snapping!
