The first impression is the last impression

Although with the smart phones and in-built cameras and the selfie culture growing through today’s people, no-one clicks just one picture. There are 99 failed selfie attempts before that one 1 good enough click. However, the scenario wasn’t the same in the early days when cameras were a higher luxury only and the common men admired even that single picture that could capture the moments.

Do you ever have the thoughts that if you could meet someone for the very first time all over again? That’s because that first scene of forming an acquaintance is irreplaceable in every sense, but what if we captured them in frames?

Here’s a list of first clicks from around the world, see the world like never before:
