My photographic interest started in 1947. At the age of 12, my mother gave me a Kodak devaluing kit. Contact printer, tank, trays, D-76, Fixer, and Dektol, the beginning of a whole lot of fun in my life.
I entered my first competition in 1951. My cameras consisted of a 2 1/4 x 3 1/4 Speed Graphic and a Kodak Bantam 828. I had a job after school in a camera shop in Elkhart, IN.
Throughout most of my life, I have taken photos. Some good, most of them bad, but I had fun. I have belonged to 4 camera clubs, and was president of one of them.
We recently moved to a senior independent living community, in Fort Collins, CO, and had to downsize considerably. I am throwing photos and slides away by the thousands. Digitizing some and storing others, probably will never look at them again. Just looked at the computer I am using to type this and have over 40.000 on it.
I am experimenting with water splash photography now and will post some of my trials on this site. I mentor a Colorado State University student for two hours a week, fortunately she likes photography. I am having a great experience.
At 84, I am hoping to be active taking photos for a few more years.

Welcome aboard. You have one year on me. I started at 13 with a Baby Brownie Special and by 16 I had a Crown Graphic 4 x 5.

Wow...thanks. I wasn't born until '47 and started in '59 with a little plastic camera I got for 50cents at some rummage sale I believe. We had those old flash bulb thingies too what a trip they were. Then I think it was a speed -graphic that caught my attention next and then finally a SLR in '68 and so forth.

It's nice to think back an reflect now & then and good luck old man.....you're a winner in your own right sir.
