World Photography Day - 19th August

Billions of pictures taken, printed, shared.. The legacy of a genius by the name of Joseph Nicéphore Niépce who invented the firs. Much later, Thomas Sutton took the first color picture in 1861. Here is an image illustration of cameras through the years:

  Today, cameras are found on phones, in buildings, on the road, in vehicles, nearly everywhere. We are constantly being watched or constantly immortalizing moments and putting them online where they are shared, copied, edited and will probably remain till the end of the internet.

And above the first color picture ever taken is that of a multi-colored ribbon.
