Came across the artical in www.wikipedia.com
"Boulevard du Temple", Photo taken by Louis Daguerre in late 1838 or early 1839. It was the first-ever photograph of a person. It is an image of a busy street, but because exposure time was over ten minutes, the city traffic was moving too much to appear. The exception is a man in the bottom left corner, who stood still getting his boots polished long enough to show up in the picture.
We have come a long way since then ,from exposure time of over 10 minutes to 1/8000 of a second.I sometimes imagin how it would be for us to wait for 10 seconds to take a photo.
Sure there is more to come come in the near future,no one knows what the future holds.
