This is the very first photo I took with my own camera, at age 10. And that is my first camera in the foreground which I have recently shown you in an earlier post.
The two men are my dad (on the left), and my grandfather (right). Grandpa was and still is my inspiration when it comes to photography. He gave me this camera and taught me how to use it. I realize how fortunate I was to have such a great teacher.
In this photo, my dad and grandpa have been working on an addition to our home and stepped outside, perhaps to leave and go get more supplies or fix someone’s furnace. I just know that one of them said, “Here, take our picture.”
I think I’ve been hooked on this for a very long time.
