Thanks Tim for hosting such a great challenge, I enjoyed the photos.


Photo of my my brother, made when I was 8 and he was almost 2. I received a camera for Christmas a twin lens kodak. The first photos I made with it was a bunch of WWII models in the snow. That a friend and I had made. I Believe those photos and negatives are lost. This Photo is from a roll of film my father developed in the kitchen sink. It was contact printed.

A really nice image for an 8 year old, Dane👌👍👍.
You got me digging deeper in stuff than I have in a long time. Not sure where they might be but I’m looking😳❗️ My first would have been with the folk’s Kodak Brownie. Even took it to a summer bible camp and shot a whole roll of over exposed and under exposed 620 film frames. Pretty sure I don’t have any of those anymore. One of my favorite Xmas presents was a Sears Tower development kit and a Tower contact print box. Soon became disenchanted with only making prints the same size as the negative.

This will be a challenge for me. My oldest aren't on drives. This the first one I took with my first digital camera - A Pentax K10

Larry this Photo was a bit over exposed. I used Photoshop Elements 10 to make it look better. I,am sure these negatives are lost. I also cropped scan to make make the subject larger. I took a lot of photos of military models. Those Photos and negatives are undoubtedly lost.

My father had alzheimer's and threw many photos and albums away. He did realize he was sick and unhooked all the power from his shop equipment.

Wow I never knew of that kit sounds cool.

Thank you for the comment and the story

Didn't have a chance to get to my first albums today, but this is the oldest one I have scanned into my computer. It was taken around 1966. I have no idea what camera I would have had, but I know it was a film camera. I had always wanted a dog and never had one until I was a newly graduated nurse. Two colleagues were moving and couldn't take their dog with them. Callie became mine and lived with my friends for several months until I moved. He was everything I ever wanted in a dog - smart, intuitive, did tricks, loved kids, and was a great companion. Here he is with my youngest sister who was maybe 8 at the time. It was Callie's birthday and she made him a goodie and insisted they both wear hats - he seemed to enjoy every moment of it. He was a shepherd/collie mix.

I don't know if I can locate the first picture I took or the earliest ones I took, BUT when I joined UHH in 2011 I posted 3 images in the "Introduce Yourself" section. (you can find your posts by clicking on the "My Posts" link at the top of every UHH page). I'm attaching one for tonight.

SO, IF you can't locate your FIRST PICTURE, try to find the FIRST one you POSTED on UHH

When I first started playing with cameras this is a picture of what mine looked like. I was about 10 years old then.

....."THE OLDEST PHOTOGRAPH YOU TOOK"...… Mine's most likely in Photo Heaven! When a child.... an aunt & uncle gave me a camera & a kit that one could develop their own pictures. I used it briefly! The pictures were small and turned very dark after several years. So....those are long gone! But I did some digging around today and I've carried this old black photo album around with me all my life with pages that are disintegrating, but the pictures still have life!

Managed to set several aside, copied them and put into my PC. I've done very little to them. Some are blurry, might have a spot on them and even a couple that have some paper stuck to them! I'm actually pleased with several of them anyways! These were taken with an upgraded camera from my 1st one....it was a Brownie Kodak! The film would go to the drug store to be developed.

It appears these were all taken in the 1950's and I was probably 11 to 17 years of age. Looks like I practiced on my brother, Cindy....the baby girl next door, our cats , snow and a couple of misc scenic shots. Please enjoy some of my oldest photographs......since the oldest one is long gone. I may need to do more than one post so hope I don't bore anyone. It's been fun digging for these this evening. Bob
1....Cindy.....the baby next door. I never knew they were expecting till my Mom said to me...."Mrs Beal had a baby girl last night." I was the kid who did a lot of work around their house & yard all the time! Totally naive!

That’s cool, Ann! I remember flash cubes like that. I think my first camera used flash bulbs - older than flash cubes.
