Where was I before the word processor cut me off?
I started in photography late. And I was even later into what I am today. It’s a hobby. Right? My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic 100. Yes, the first model. My first SLR was an Exakta. Yes, an old brand. And finally, Nikon F. Everyone has/had a Nikon! I developed black and white in my basement. Tri-X. Finally, slide film was my film of choice, but by then I was an adult. Well, nearly so. Maybe so?
Keeping track? Following? My photographic catalogs begin late into my life – early adulthood. It would have been fun… but I was fortunate to get my kids and everything that followed. I regret the lost photos and everything I missed. I am grateful for having a hobby that pursued me into retirement.
Street photography. London. Street fair. Portobello road.
“The west London site is most famous for having one of the world’s largest antique, bric-a-brac and vintage clothing markets.”
I was but an innocent tourist with very little knowledge of how to photograph. I could aim focus and shoot. In those days one had to set the shutter speed, f-stop, and manually focus. Eh? Not bad!
