A Little History from Yesterday Once More

 Nikon D3, every photographers dream.

Hi nature. And hello humans.

It is about yesterday once more, again since this is what this blog named after. Before further questions let me tell you why this blog is named *as you can see up there*. I love photography, and I also love arts as well and since photography is one of the greatest art that you can see in your daily life, the newspaper, facebook, and even blog will involved this art. And the photography itself it have the *art of seeing.

Well I won't tell you more about that, but as we all knew all this arts was founded decades ago and still being use until today. And this blog was inspired from that. The art from yesterday will be founded, learned and be remembered today.

Photography is the result of combining several technical discoveries. Long before the first photographs were made, Chinese philosopher Mo Di and Greek mathematicians Aristotle and Euclid described a pinhole camera in the 5th and 4th centuries BC. And it was the beginning for photography.

| All the pictures that are taken was originally monochrome or known as black and white picture. |

Early experiments in color required extremely long exposures (hours or days for camera images) and could not "fix" the photograph to prevent the color from quickly fading when exposed to white light. The first permanent color photograph was taken in 1861 using the three-color-separation principle first published by physicist James Clerk Maxwell in 1855. Maxwell's idea was to take three separate black-and-white photographs through red, green and blue filters.

And it all happened yesterday, a few decades ago. And it is about yesterday once more, where the memories remain.
