    I'm sure everyone here has seen this photo before, but did you realize that the photographer actually caught me taking the same photograph? I'm to the left, behind some women. (Photoshop apology. This was early on in my Photoshop days. If I were to do it again, I would know enough about DOF to blur myself a bit more so I fit in a little better)

    I later Photoshopped myself into what I believe is the very first photograph (Paris streets 1838 - credited to Louis Daguerre, inventor of the daguerrotype.) , so now it is also definitely the very first photograph of a photographer taking a photo....that's me at the lower left (There are many others in the street, but since it was a 10 minute exposure, everyone blurred out except for me and the guy shining shoes because we were very still for those 10 minutes.....LOL).

    Love your sense of humor, Luke. I wonder what a psychologist would say about all these self insertions?:tongue:
