For the very first time in recorded human history, a long exposure shot had been photographed.
The feat was achieved by a French inventor named Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. He captured it in the spring of 1826. He achieved this feat by utilising a bitumen coated pewter plate to capture an image of the courtyard’s view outside his window.
In 1855, an English landscape photographer Roger Fenton was commissioned to cover the infamous Crimean War.
Here he captured a dusty road with trails of wagons and numerous cannonballs. …
In today’s fast-paced digital world, advertising has become such an integral part of our socio-economic lives that it is pretty much impossible to picture a world without it. In fact, at its core, all life on this planet depends on a sort of “advertising behaviour” to survive.
From trying to lure their prey to enticing a potential mate, this behaviour forms the very basis of life on this planet. For example, flowers are colourful, bright, and aromatic so that a variety of insects (“ customers”) get drawn towards them. …
Today women enjoy the same rights and opportunities as that of men in most walks of life. But, this wasn’t the case a few decades back in time. For a very large part of the time in history, women were considered to be inferior to men and subjected to various forms of discrimination. They were often viewed as personal property and listed alongside lands, livestock, and other assets owned & cared for by men. …
“Nothing you wear is more valuable than your beautiful smile.” — Connie Stevens
Whether you’ve noticed this or not, it is absolutely rare to find people smiling in photographs during the 19th and 20th centuries. The individuals in the photographs always looked grim and creepy irrespective of their then state of mind and social status.
A vast majority of the photographed people look extremely sad for a reason unknown. …
Almost everybody on the planet poops on a daily basis, often in the complete solitude and utmost comfort of their toilet. Whether you admit it or not research has confirmed that pooping is seemingly the only time when most of our minds are at the highest level of cognitive ease.
The reason being that it is the only activity during which we truly let go of all our problems and inhibitions which, in turn, allows our mind to experience the innate joyous feeling of living in the moment. …
Today, when we look back at the period of modern history, we get overwhelmed by the countless tales of climactic wars, heroic soldiers, and fierce revolutions that inspired millions all over the world. But pause for a moment and consider this:
“Have you ever tried to analyse these historical accounts from the perspective of the defeated?”
“History is and will always be written by the winners.”
This firmly betokens that the history we are taught today is not solely based on facts. It is instead a chaotic representation of events put together and propagated by a victorious conqueror.
For more than two hundred years, the so-called civilized British colonizers systematically plundered India’s resources and, more importantly, its citizens to fuel their rise as a global superpower. This image captures the very essence of that parasitic relation that the Britishers and Indians shared in the past.
This picture was captured moments before 11 months old Pacman’s made his first independent kill. The photographer revealed that the young tiger seized the fawn by its back instead of its neck. For the next few minutes, the forest was filled with the painful cries of the fawn as the inexperienced tiger began savouring his meal before choking and killing his prey. He added that “Pacman failed to give the fawn a peaceful death due to the lack of experience hunting.”
The 20th of July, 1969, was a watershed moment in human history. It was the day when American astronauts of the Apollo 11 mission descended onto the moon’s surface. By so doing so, they became the first-ever humans in recorded human history to step foot on a celestial body.
Since then, 24 astronauts from various countries have visited our moon’s vicinity. At least 12 individuals have touched down on the moon’s surface as part of six separate missions.
These space missions have helped us gather incredible amounts of knowledge about our planet’s only natural satellite.
Nevertheless, on the flip side…
