    As Lewis Carroll, he wrote the definitive poem about photography. It's a bit long, so see this link:
    http://people.virginia.edu/~ds8s/carroll/hia.html#EXTRA

    The link refers to the following section as "Verses added later - when the wet-plate process was less common.":

    First, a piece of glass he coated
    With collodion, and plunged it
    In a bath of lunar caustic
    Carefully dissolved in water -
    There he left it certain minutes.

    Secondly, my Hiawatha
    Made with cunning hand a mixture
    Of the acid pyrro-gallic,
    And of glacial-acetic,
    And of alcohol and water
    This developed all the picture.

    Finally, he fixed each picture
    With a saturate solution
    Which was made of hyposulphite
    Which, again, was made of soda.
    (Very difficult the name is
    For a metre like the present
    But periphrasis has done it.)

    I think the "rumors" are too numerous to discount, and the facts pretty darned obvious. I am not particularly interested in his photography anyway (especially as I don't particularly like children and have no qualms about admitting it). I do have a copy of "Through the Looking Glass" on our bed side table however, and think it's something everyone should read once a year, along with "You Can't Go Home Again" and "1984".
