In 1826, a Frenchman named Niepce needed pictures for his business. But he was not a good artist, so he invented a very simple camera. He put it in a window of his house and took a picture of his garden. That was the first photo.
The next important date in the history of photography (摄影) was in 1837. That year, Daguerre, another Frenchman, took a picture of his reading room. He used a new kind of camera in a different way. In his picture you could see everything very clearly, even the smallest thing. This kind of photo was called Daguerreotype.
Soon, other people began to use Daguerre’s way. Travelers brought back wonderful photos from all around the world. People took pictures of famous buildings, cities and mountains.
In about 1840, photography was developed. Then photographers could take pictures of people and moving things. That was not simple. The photographers had to carry a lot of film and other machines. But this did not stop them, for example, some in the United States worked so hard. Mathew Brady was a famous American photographer. He took many pictures of great people. The pictures were unusual because they were very lifelike (栩栩如生的).

What a good friend should be like
Recently, we did a survey in our school on what a good friend should be like. Nearly all (95%) of the students think a good friend should be kind, helpful and honest. He or she should trust you and be willing to share joys with you. Sixty-seven percent of the students would
like their friends to be fond of singing and dancing. Besides, they hope their friends are good at sports. Forty-eight percent of the students agree that a good friend must be hard-working and do well in lessons. Of course, there are some (7% / less than 10%) caring about appearance. They prefer to choose those with beautiful faces as their good friends.
I don’t think a good friend has to be beautiful or handsome. I think honesty is the most important.
