Daguerre

Daguerre is credited with inventing photography in the early 19th century. Then someone makes this nice monument to him. Wouldn't a photograph be better? Anyway, then I come along and take a photograph of a sculpture of the inventor of photography...using a digital camera. Very confusing.

Outside the National Portrait Gallery.

At least you didn't paint a picture.

Thank you for resisting the urge to say that Daguerre developed photography...

So, you took a digital daguerreotype, n'est pas?

Call it a digital-litho-tintype.

Still better than a wood-carving.

Is there glass in the lens?
