I've been taking pictures since 1976 when my parents bought me a Kodak Instamatic. I slowly progressed through 110 cameras to an Olympus AF-10 on my 18th birthday.
By borrowing SLRs from friends I developed my photographic/artistic eye and was eventually in aposition to buy my very own SLR.
Come the early 2000s and the lure of digital got me and I spent a fortune on a dSLR (how much film could I have bought?) but after a few years I moved back to film and all of the joys it can bring.
I use a variety of cameras and formats including:
Canon EOS 500N
Olympus Trip 35
I play instruments - Banjo, guitar, ukulele. I paint. I dig.
