Man has always been cribbing about his past. Whether its an "I shouldn't have done that" guilt or "i wish i was there again" reminiscence, we have been drowning in the "PAST- TENSE" drain since time immemorial .
To add to the misery, an instrument that could enable the humans to linger on to the happy/sad memories forever, was developed in the 17th century - THE CAMERA.
But with time, photography has evolved from a mere collection of memories to a Giant Commercial playground. In addition to capturing the entire social experience, with the advancement of digital image processing techniques the camera has found its room in the field of automation, virtual games, advertising, films, fashion, sports, entertainment and more. Apart from its business utility, cameras have proved to be of great importance in national security, and medicine. And with photography, so have evolved the cameras.
The overwhelming growth of digital photography in domestic use is a joint payoff by the hardware and software advancements, with the zoom lenses and the wide focus options on one hand and the mega pixels, ISO, face detection on the other. And not to forget, the lavish breeding of smart phones and social networking websites with their numerous tagging options, have taken "clicking photos" to altogether a new level.
So now all you need to do is "Say Cheese" and Re-Re-live a Party forever and ever ;-)
