Unfortunatly I don't live in SoCal. I wish I did, but I don't. I'm from the Central Valley in a city called Fresno. It would have been great to go to a Sanders show though.As I'm another Californian (So Cal-Riverside) I wonder if you went to the Sanders show at the Getty...still up through August I believe..
I just went Saturday
I have a younger brother who's 5 years old too. Sometimes when I go out to shoot, he brings his plastic camera and askes if he can use mine. lolmy son i 5 1/2 jear old and asks me for his first camera. he also helps me in the darkroom. oh im so proud :-).
we (i´m 39) had only the analog way.
and believe me we (older) are so happy when younger than us find the way to the analog photographie.Thank you, I'm glad to be here. I think I've finally found a site whose members accepted my youth.Anyway, enjoy the site and it's refreshing to have a 17 yr. old interested in film.
