Pictures Speak Volumes!
« on: December 31, 2012, 02:00:07 PM »
Saw this somewhere and loved it.

1. The First Photograph [France, 1826]
Taken by Nicéphore Niépce, this is the first photograph ever taken which still exists. He called his method heliography (sun writing) and this photograph took 8 hours of exposure time (hence sunlight on both sides of the building).

3. Tiananmen Square [China, 1989]

This is the picture of a student who tried to stop the tanks in Tiananmen Square standing in front of them. The tank driver didn’t crush the student with the bags but shortly after, the square was filled with innocent blood. The photo showed the Chinese that there is hope. However, China is still controlled by a communist regime.
