When I was about 6 or 7 years old my dad gave me a little black camera. I can’t remember the exact model, it was something similar to a Nikon Nice Touch 35mm. For about a year or so I was really devoted to carrying around this camera and taking pictures of literally everything.
I had about thirty 35mm films that needed to be developed. These sat on a shelf and gathered dust until a few years ago when I took them all to Boots so I could finally view my childhood masterpieces.
Alas, about 90% of them where poorly lit, blurred, or my finger was covering the lens or flash. The photos that were salvagable fell into one of 3 catagories; my cat Sootz, my twin brother or my garden. Or on occasion all 3!
I had actually forgotton about this year long obsession that I had experienced until I was in my final year of college – where I was studying photography!
And with that we reach a full circle.
I don’t really practise photography much anymore since leaving college and gaining so many other commitments, but I still enjoy taking my trusted Nikon D3100 out on adventures with me.
