Every since I can remember I have been clicking away life through the lens of a camera. My first camera was one of those rectangular 110 with a flash that you had to hold in while taking the picture. I think I was about 8 and I must have saved up my money to develop the pictures, because I have albums and albums of pictures of various things, oil in the driveway catching light and forming a rainbow (it sounds better than it looked), an empty wine bottle from underneath a glass table, and many, many of my dogs and sisters.
When I got to middle school, i was introduced to black and white photography and I was hooked!! Since then, I have albums and albums of black and white photos of odd things that happen to catch my eye. After not taking any for several years, I stumbled upon an old manual camera with a telescopic lens at a yard sale for $20! It was quite a gamble but ended up taking great pictures.
Soon, however it became harder and harder to get my pictures developed, so i had to switch to the digital world and opt for the color options of black and white.
