I remember my first picture, I still have it somewhere... I had done prints in school before (7th grade), then brought in a negative I had made myself: A close-up of some straws, shot with my father's Welta Weltini (I still have that camera, too).

The print was nice (on "Carton weight" AGFA Brovira), but the negative too unsharp for enlarging beyond 5x7".
