Miller: Rare photos on display at Batavia museum
A picture is worth 1,000 words. And with the opportunity to take a photo at every turn through cellphones, iPads, computers and an actual camera adds up to a lot of words.
Everywhere you look people are taking photos. We have a tendency to document everything with the prevalence of social media, including pets, ourselves and even our food. It’s hard to imagine a time when you couldn’t pull out a camera and take a photo. We often take for granted the technology we have available, and perhaps its even harder to remember a day when those technologies weren’t available.
Throughout the late 1800s through the early 1900s, it was difficult to take a good photo. Then, many cameras didn’t have a flash, therefore photographers needed a large amount of natural lighting to take photos. Photos were difficult to capture and interior photos were harder to pull off.
