Photo of the Day – 14th of July 2013

Boulevard du Temple, Paris

Boulevard du Temple (1838) –  Louis Daguerre.

This image is particularly special because it is the very first photograph to have a human being in it. Taken on a 10 minute exposure the individuals in the bottom left hand corner were the only people to keep still long enough to register in the image.

Chances are neither of them new they were making history.
