    Going through the gallery, I enjoyed Mr. McCallum's "First Enlargement". I pulled out my first, scanned (no arguements with the scanner for a change) and posted mine too. It was fun to go through some of my first prints again, see how far I've come since that day. Remembering the days of scratching my head, and saying "wha?"
    I'm wondering if some of you others kept your first print and would post it here too. If nothing else, it's worth a chuckle looking at the early work
    (wow, almost sounds like a record... )

    I'm sure my first print no longer exists, but here's a self-portrait from one of the oldest negs I have in my file--4th of July 1978. The camera would have been a 35mm Ricoh rangefinder (I forget the model), Plus-X in Microdol-X.

    I kinda figured many would not have thier first print., but it would be fun to see anyway.
