(The FIRST photo you ever developed and scanned/printed on your own)

FIRST photo you ever developed:
Well, one of the first. 1950s Kodak 620. (part of Photography merit badge work)
But this is one of the first I scanned from Kodachrome slide film in the late 20th c
Blue Angels at the El Toro Airshow, circa 1987, captured on Ektachrome. Early (if recent) scanning effort using Nikkor ES-1 slide copier + PK-13 extension tube + Micro-Nikkor 55mm/2.8 on Nikon D810. Cropped.
A print I made from a roll of film I took with my parent's kodak 35mm camera. It is also the first image I consciously thought of as "art." I was probably about 16 or 17. The drug store would not print this one because it was too thin, but in a friend's darkroom I used a high contrast paper and made this print, about 1968 or so. This is a scan of that print.
One of the few good early photographs that I ever took and (not so good) developed; my sister at Santa Cruz beach in about 1956 or 1957. It took a lot of Photoshop work to eliminate fingerprints, dust, scratches, etc. from the scan of a contact print. Might have been taken with my mother's Kodak Autographic roll film camera.
One of the first pictures I developed in my darkroom/bathroom. It hung over my desk for several years back in the early 60s until it resurfaced recently when I scanned it.
Not the first taken but this was recently found in a box of prints from around 1980. The guy with little hair now has none, it was a camera club outing. I think it was taken at a working farm museum in Shropshire UK.
I'm not sure this one is actually the first, but ...
Taken in around 1975 (Disneyland back lot)
Leicaflex SL, 50mm Summicron
K-64 (scanned and converted to B&W)
