I got my first real SLR, a Canon FTb, at the age of twelve. That is now 48 years ago. I was a real photo nerd, and plowed through all the photo books that were in the library. At first, I understood nothing, but I learned.
For many years, as an adult, I mainly documented family life with my pictures, but some years ago I went back trying to create photos worth sharing. Lately, I have added some personal thoughts on life in general in my posts.
Getting curious? Of course, I am also at Facebook! And I share photos on Instagram.
