I didn't own a camera till 1984. An Olympus RF point and shoot was handed
to me by my eldest brother as a going away present just as I was about
to board a plane for prep school.
But before then, there's always a camera nearby if not in the house. When
I was younger I remember mother always having a semipro to the house to
take semi formal portraits of the family. The usual headshots or of posed
family members ... classic pose all over the house.
than that I remember our numerous family trips to the photo studio. We'd
all be dressed up, carted to the studio on dad's Vespa. These photos are
still around, they are always a delight to look at.
This site is mainly aimed as a vehicle for sharing information about the
tools of photography as well as the photographs with a wider community
... family members, friends and fellow enthusiasts.
