About Photography New York City Photos

What Joseph-Nicephore Niepce did with his camera 'Obscura' back in 1828 was something that we would now call a photograph. He set up a camera in the window of his home, left it there for most of the day, and wound up with a grainy, blurry photograph of the rooftops nearby. One photograph took several hours. Imagine how tired you could get of standing perfectly still and saying "Cheese!"

Niepce's invention was maybe not as important as the invention of the Wheel, the Steam Engine, Penicillin or the Radio Transmission, but for sure the best one for historical documents, keeping our memories as well as for fun, art & joy.
