Sometimes we take photography for granted. With every device we have now sporting a camera, snapping images on-the-fly is as common as checking our watch to see the time (what’s a watch?). But there are some photographs from history that just make us stand back in amazement. Whether it’s capturing the beginning of something new or archiving a rare moment in human history, there are some images that make us appreciate the technology we have to capture them.
This one is especially for you history buffs out there. These are some of the rarest photographs ever captured. Some of these are so awesome that even if you’re not a fan of history, we’ll be surprised if your mind isn’t blown even a tiny bit.
