Happy Cyber Monday!
To help get you back in the spirit of taking photos rather than just buying camera gear, here's an inspiring video (just over a minute long) titled "A Short History of Photography."
The clip starts with an image of Ibn al-Haytham, the scientist who helped develop the camera obscura -- which is seen as a prototype of today's modern camera -- and then travels through time, making stops at the earliest known photograph, the first color photo and the first digitally scanned photograph along the way.
