While serving with the 82nd Abn in 1976 I saw some pics that a member of my platoon had taken with an AE-1 while skydiving with the Golden Knights. I have never forgotten the color and clarity of those shots. A bit later, I held my first SLR; an SRT-101 that belonged to a friend. I was awed by it. I eventually went to digital, but it's just not the same. I'm back to film.
