Louis Lumiere sets his camera's sight on other filmmakers. As they exit the boat at Lyon, the attendees greet the camera. August Lumiere is one of the people filmed. As the people filmed were attending the Photographical Congress, they must have appreciated the camera set up before them. Some greet it, while others duck quickly out of the way.

The Lumieres were keen on filming everyday life. They wanted to record everyday moments in normal life. We are able to witness the styles of dress as well as the mannerisms of the people in the late nineteen hundreds.
