My Brief Life As a Photographer
My name is , and my 1st camera was a mail-order Kodak 110 Instamatic pocket film camera with a “stick” flash purchased by saving proofs-of-purchase from my mom’s feminine hygiene products. My 2nd camera was my mom’s Polaroid Land camera. I used a film SLR for a class assignment in the early 1980s. My next camera was a Canon Elph APS camera.
After that, I inherited a couple of my brother’s cast-off digital point & shoots. They were okay, but nothing about them made me want to spend my vacation travels with a camera in front of my face when I could just be enjoying myself, unencumbered.
Then something happened … to find out what, read my 1st essay.
