On August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent to the Daguerreotype and announced the invention was a free gift to the world. Today is a celebration of the art that is photography.
I took this photo this afternoon, of a particular window, which caught my eye a few minutes before because of the little bit of life finding a way in the frame at the upper right.
It’s mundane. It’s banal. It’s beautiful. It’s inspirational.
