    historical photographs

    Southern Sudan




    Kevin Carter took this photograph in southern Sudan. The picture would later bring him the Pulitzer prize, but also death. The image shows a vulture waiting for a child to starve to death. This horrific sight affected the photographer so deeply that he committed suicide after winning the Pulitzer Prize.



    Volcano Victim



    Omayra Sánchez was 13 years old when the Nevado del Ruiz volcano erupted. She was trapped in the remains of her house for three days in water up to her neck. Photor-reporter Frank Fournier got this picture a few hours before her death. The Red Cross alerted the local authorities, but they could not get there in time and Omayra died of hypothermia.


    Soweto Riots




    A photo that managed to draw the attention of the world shows Hector Peterson, age 13, as he dies in the arms of Mbuyisa Makhubo, after he was shot by a police officer on June 16, 1976, during the Soweto riot in South Africa. Picture taken by Sam Nzima.

    The First Photograph [France, 1826]




    Taken by Nicéphore Niépce, this is the first photograph ever taken which still exists. He called his method heliography (sun writing) and this photograph took 8 hours of exposure time (hence sunlight on both sides of the building).

          On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong put his left foot on the rocky Moon. It was the first human footprint on the Moon. They had taken TV cameras with them. The first footprints on the Moon will be there for a million years. This photograph was taken by Buzz Aldrin.

                        Life is NOT measured by the number of breaths we take but the moments that take our breath away!!!
                        16 breaths a minute, 23040 a day...NO one knows which one will be their LAST!

                          Who is that Baba ji with Benazir. I think he was the FM India then. Recently, someone told me that most of Indian FMs comes from Maharashtra / South? It is so? Why?

                              I think its Sanam Bhutto with Benazir Bhutto. Benazir's daughter and her Khala have a good resemblance
