Interesting Fact # 1278 - Photography

The first photograph was taken in 1814 by by French scientist and inventor Nicephore Niepce (pronounced Nee-ps).

(He used a Camera Obscura, but it needed eight hours of light exposure and even then the resulting photograph was not permanent, it faded to black in daylight. Maybe that's what Metallica were singing about.)
