My Daguerreotype Boyfriend - WHERE EARLY PHOTOGRAPHY MEETS EXTREME HOTNESS  -- I can't decide if this is creepy or what, but the concept is pretty cool.    PS. This hottie here went mad and ended his days in an asylum :(

Not sure when this was taken, but notice the possible Star of David patch on his left arm...hmmm?

1854, rare daguerreotype in which the subjects are smiling. These pictures took so long to capture that the people sitting were usually told not to smile because their facial muscles wouldn't be able to hold the expression that long, blurring the picture. (That's also why babies, like the one here, tend to look a bit fuzzy and surreal. You try to keep an infant still that long!)
