Turn your projects into Grand Slam events!

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.

Declare your independence from full-price images!

On the night of July 4, 1776, the second Continental Congress, consisting of representatives from the 13 British colonies in North America, already engaged in conducting a war of independence from colonial bondage, and creating a new independent government, completed the document formalizing their “Declaration of Independence” from Great Britain. 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.

Remember your Father, but don’t forget the savings!

After the death of his wife, William Jackson Smart had to raise his 16-year-old daughter Sonora and her four younger brothers by himself. He not only succeeded at this task – raising five productive members of society – but he also instilled strong feelings of responsibility and gratitude in his children. Sonora wanted to thank her father, and inspired by the recent nationwide recognition of Mother's Day, she set out to establish a special holiday dedicated to the fathers in her hometown of Spokane, Washington.

First time around everything is special, and so was our trip to Photoshop World in DC.
