Q.  Is there a way to find people's first photos?
(OK, nobody has really asked this.)

A.  Many digital cameras generate file names for the photos like DSC_NNNN.JPG
which NNNN is a number.  So when somebody buys a new camera the first
photo is "DSC_0001.jpg".  DSC stands for Digital Still Camera.
Other cameras use "IMG_NNNN.JPG".

Sometimes they post their first photo on the net and you can search for them:
http://www.google.com/images?q=DSC_0001
http://www.google.com/images?q=IMG_0001
