Is it possible to take a photo from our one Milky Way?
Earth is in the centet of the Milky Way. Is it possible to take a photo of that same Milky Way?

Earth is not in the centre of the Milky Way. We in one of the outer arms. You can see the bulk of the galaxy on a clear night.

If it is from an external point of view it is NOT a photo.

We have NO photos of the galaxy from outside it, obviously!

It will be an artist's impression.

Bear in mind many other galaxies look very like the Milky Way. It is a typical spiral galaxy. Andromeda, our neighbour, is very similar.

Link to an article explaining the solar system's position in the milky way.
We are not in the centre

To answer your question: the only way to take a photo of the galaxy where you can see it from above the elliptic plane, would be to launch a camera into interstellar space above the galaxy.
Given our current tech, I estimate that such a satellite would arrive at the desired position in a few million years, so don't get your hopes up of seeing such photo in our lifetime.

Thats a side on view. Not one from the top. The galaxy is not solid. It's gas stars and dust. And we can see through the gaps to see the centre.
To take a photo like that. Go to a place with low light pollution, away from cities, and preferably higher up. Then point your cam tithe sky and take a long exposure photo.

It is the aspect of the galxy which we can see from our position.

Do some reading on galxies. It's really not that difficult to understand. It's a huge disk of star and we are near the outer edge, so we can look inward to the centre and see most of the galaxy (some is obscured by interstellar dust).

There are NO photos of the Milky Way galaxy from
outside the galaxy. They are artists conceptions
based on the actual distributions of the visible
stars in the galaxy.

No, it was not a stupid question. Your only error was in assuming that we are at the centre of the galaxy, when in fact we are near its outer edge, so we can in fact see most of its shape from where we are.
