Once upon a time, when Kodak made Brownie cameras and I didn't know how to load film, my Dad said to me ," Do you want to take a picture of Mom and myself?". I said, "Yes". He said, "Well, here, look in this viewfinder, make sure you don't cut of our heads and press this button?" So I said, "Yes". After that eventful day I didn't take any more pictures because I never had a camera and wasn't that interested. I began travelling and shooting film and each time with a bit more consideration of what I was shooting. I have been doing it know for about 40 years.
