09.10.10 = My first camera
I was on the phone last week with a good friend of mine and we were catching up on each others lives. My photography came up in conversation, it seems lately, it always finds it’s way into the conversation. Anyway, while we were talking he buzzed over to my website to have a look. “Wow, Kris, I had no idea. But now that I think about it, you always did have a camera with you.” Yes, I never go anywhere without the big black necklace. I started me thinking about my first camera. Now, I purchased my first camera in High School and I was given, what I thought was my first camera at age 12. BUT, when I saw this camera, a flood a memories returned. THIS WAS MY FIRST CAMERA! Not a real working camera, but a camera nonetheless. What childhood toys had an impact on you? Did you have Lego’s and now you are an architect? Did you play Monopoly over and over and now you are real estate? All this made me really wonder, if these innocent toys had such an impact on our lives, what about the kids today? What will they be saying in 40 years?
