Is This The Most-Viewed Photograph Of All Time?
Ever surprise what the foremost viewed photo of all time is? It may not be as well known as the famous celebrity, but Charles O’Rear’s photo, Bliss, the most viewed photograph of all time is perhaps. This photograph chosen by Microsoft and published as a default wallpaper of Windows XP in 2002.

It was shot by the side of a highway by Charles O’Rear (a former National Geographic photographer) using a medium format camera.This photograph has reportedly been viewed by over 1 billion audience.
