Time is weird. When I was at High School (1978 to 1983) if anyone mentioned the 1960s, it seemed like ages ago, e.g. a song from 1969 mentioned in 1979 was only ten years old but seemed almost as distant as WWII. Now the 1980s and 1990s seem so recent despite being 30-40 years ago.

Or perhaps I'm just old!

No you are not old. Actually I told a little untruth I brought my first camera in 1997. That was long ago for me because that was when I took my first photos and started photographing.
I was a late starter, I was 26 years old.
So relatively speaking it was long ago in terms of my photographic career.
My brain and my way of thoughts are still in the 1980's.
