#14. Candid Snapshots of Famous People- Back in the 1960s the private lives of the rich and famous were still well-kept secrets.  And most photos of them were carefully crafted by studios. But every now and then, a lucky fan with a camera would have a chance encounter with an actor or musician. The end result was a much more interesting candid picture.
