 For a better timeline that's interactive and explanations: Timeline of Photography

In honor of photos, I will be posting pictures all this week. Today you can suggest what photos I should post here in the comments but please remember that I won't do anything disturbing or bad. It can be funny, beautiful, moving, etc. Or it can have something to do with a certain topic. And I'll try to blog about that topic if you'd like too.

Sorry for the really short post today, I'm quite busy with the 4th of July tomorrow and helping with fixing our kitchen. But I hope that you at least find the interactive timeline cool.

So, do you have a camera? What kind? What's your favorite photo? Does it have a story behind it?
