My dad let me try his Brownie in the early 60's. I was hooked! MY first camera, was a Nikkormat EL. Been collecting cameras and gadgets ever since. Or as my wife puts it, I've been spending money ever since!
I'm retired now so really just getting back into seriously getting out there again to see and photograph places. And of course, then Covid hit. My main goal today is to go back to places I shot in the past, with old film and early digital cameras, and re-shoot them. I want to stare-and-compare at how far (I hope) I've come. And along that journey, everything new to me is fair game for my camera!
