Grew up doing photography. Fell off it for about fifteen years, when I went into the Army. Stood on a mountain top in Bosnia, 2002, and couldn't believe I did not have a camera to capture the beauty. Been back ever since. Still dragging my cameras from deployment to deployment. Willing to give up chow in my rucksack to make room for cameras and film.
Not unlike my own story. However, I never sacrificed food in my rucksack for camera and film. Instead I had a very cheap fixed focus 35mm (before disposables were widely available) that I would load with cheap 400 color negative. I would just stuff it in a pocket. It survived environments ranging from the arctic to Saudi Arabia.
I've been everywhere ooooohhh yeaahhhh still I'm standing tall.
Happy APUGGING-this is a fantastic resource!
