I am so thankful for the development of photography as an affordable medium for capturing memories. I’ve often said that I’d eat rice and beans in order to afford a new camera if mine ever broke, because it’s really that important to me.

Just for fun, I put together this gallery with some of the milestones in camera development since the early 1900s. It’s incredible to see how far technology has come, but I’m pretty impressed by what was available more than 100 years ago as well!
