Did You Know…Empty Streets of Paris

Did you know…

The oldest known photo with a human being in the shot shows a man in Paris getting his shoes shined. Why are they the only people on the street of Paris? They weren’t but they were the only people standing still long enough for the daguerreotype to capture their outline.

To all the shutterbugs…Happy Shooting!
