I'm extremely pleased that finally we have a shared database of images for all language-WPs. I still remember that nightmarish epoch when we had to laboriously copy images around WPs by cross-downloading them fro-and-to one, and uploading them again to another. Thank goodness that's all behind us now.

Most of the photos I had uploaded here were taken with my own two hands and my own camera. They can be used across any Wikimedia sites.

My aim here is to clarify some the captions and by adding helpful information that might not be obvious on the photo, such as unclear text on old images or inscriptions of monuments in photos. This is beneficial to language learners still unfamiliar with certain fonts or scripts and also improves accessibility for visually impaired site users.

Thank you, fellow Wikimedians, for sharing your beauteous plentifully.
