Phileas Fogg reached Turin on October 4, 1872. at 6:35 a.m. and left the city at 7:20 a.m., which we consider very unfortunate. Thе capital of the Italian north is known for its beautiful architecture, piazzas, parks and delicious Italian cuisine. How can one spend less than an hour in such a place? No haste or bet could be more important than the beauty of this Piedmont capital. Turin deserves more precise attention, and today we will attract that attention with these great views of the city.

Форт Лодердейл, Флорида, 18 сентября 2012 года – Depositphotos, наиболее активно развивающийся фотобанк в мире, отменяет функцию покупки файлов за SMS ввиду нерентабельности услуги.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, September 18, 2012 – Depositphotos, the fastest-growing microstock agency in the world, will not accept payment by SMS anymore, since this method has proved to be unprofitable. From the moment Depositphotos was founded, its goal was to provide its clients with the widest range of payment methods possible. Therefore, the company introduced its innovative pay-by-SMS functionality. However, this technology proved too expensive: due to high mobile rates Depositphotos’ contributors, as well as the company itself, were earning significantly less than they did when files were purchased with other payment methods.
Fort Lauderdale, Florida, August 30, 2012 – Depositphotos, the fastest-growing microstock agency in the world, has reached the 9-million-image milestone. Furthermore, Depositphotos announces the launch of a high-quality video upload platform, and all contributors are welcome to upload their videos for sale. For the past year, Depositphotos has continued to please its customers with updated website functionality, a radically improved “Smart Search,” a new collection of “Editorial use only” images and a brand-new lightbox operating system. Those improvements were designed to meet customers’ needs, as well as to make working with the constantly growing website content (which has more than doubled, from 4 to 9 million images in the last year) even easier. Progress at Depositphotos knows no bounds; the company announced that new video upload functionality is now available for contributors on the website. The upload requirements for video files are: a resolution between 320х240 and 1920х1080 pixels (Full HD) a length between 3 and 60 seconds, and a maximum video size of 1000 Mb.

Every year, Wimbledon, a quiet suburb of London, turns into the world capital of tennis. For two weeks, the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club (AELTC) holds the Wimbledon Championships on its courts. It is arguably the most prestigious competition of all the four Grand Slam tournaments. Wimbledon is the only major tennis championship in the world where the matches are held on grass. Even though the ball generally stays in play much longer on clay courts (like at the French Open), tennis games on grass require different set of skills and faster reactions from the players.Wimbledon © Depositphotos | Margaret Grissom

After it was completed and signed, it was read aloud for all the people who gathered in front of the Continental Congress building in Philadelphia.Happy 4th of July! © Depositphotos | Marina Riley
