The internet keeps amazing me every day anew. For a hobby photographer, it is just like a river full of life to an angler. No sooner than the fishing rod is tossed, a catch is made 😉 . Thanks to a short article on popphoto.com, I took notice of a stunning Flickr-collection by the George Eastman House Museum.

Over a thousand photographs can be marveled at on the Flickr stream of the GEH. Amongst them are famous personalities such as former US-president Abraham Lincoln.
Or historical events, like the moon landing and the walk on its surface.
Other than scanned negatives and paper prints, the stream offers some digitalized daguerreotypes as well. Since a screen can never truthfully depict the depth effect (similar to 3D holograms that change perspective when tilted), they are said to be much more beautiful in reality.
A visit is well worthwhile. 🙂
