    World's First Photograph - Year 1826 - few more interesting photos

    World's First Photograph

    Centuries of advances in chemistry and optics, including the invention of the camera obscura, set the stage for the world’s first photograph. In 1826, French scientist Joseph Nicéphore Niépce, took that photograph, titled View from the Window at Le Gras, at his family’s country home. Niépce produced his photo—a view of a courtyard and outbuildings seen from the house’s upstairs window—by exposing a bitumen-coated plate in a camera obscura for several hours on his windowsill.

    First Ever Photograph of a Human Being

    This photograph of Boulevard du Temple in Paris was made in 1838 by Louis Daguerre, the brilliant guy that invented the daguerreotype process of photography. Aside from its distinction of being a super early photograph, it’s also the first photograph to ever include a human being. Because the image required an exposure time of over ten minutes, all the people, carriages, and other moving things disappear from the scene. However, in the bottom left hand corner is a man who just so happened to stay somewhat still during the shot — he was having his shoes shined.

    It’s interesting how sheer luck earned the guy a place in the history of photography. Too bad we’ll probably never know his identity.

    What's really amazing is how there is so much going on, cars, horses, pedestrians, trains/trolleys all mixed together and no one is getting run down. Where are the helmets? Safety rails? Barriers, side walks, traffic lights? LOL

    See, this is a good example of good ole common sense and being responsible for your own actions. Think anyone would or could sew if something did happen? Not

    Agree. This is so interesting to me. I'd live to live a month or so during those times.

    Really cool finds. I always thought I was born in the wrong century. Lovbytes, youre so right about the protections lacking back then. People made it though! Shows just how restrictive governments have become. I swear every time I leave my house I'm worried about coming home with some kind of fine.

    I couldnt agree more. I do the same thing, worry about fines.

    I'm glad I grew up in the day where we rode bikes without helmets, walked around the neighborhood with a BB gun rifle, has a sling shot in my back pocket, main rule was to be home before sunset and when mom wanted you home for dinner she just stood on the front porch and yelled your name saying it's time for dinner. Yeah really and no it wasnt a farm. lol

    Lol. I know. My childhood was the same. If a kid did that today there would be a SWAT team and antiterrorism task force on scene in no time. Then his parents would spend their life savings and the next 12 years of their lives trying to get him out of Guantanamo.

    Yeah, can you imagine? I know some of the things I did I have no doubt I would have been arrested for being a terrorist. Llast 2 days of high school I set off 2 different 6" fire crackers, 1/4 stick of dynamite. On in the football field bleachers using a cigarette as a timer and another in the parking lot lawn as we were leaving. I was even seen by the school security but nothing happened.

    Now days they would claim I was trying to blow the place up. It was stupid though.
