Here I shall be writing words…some of which may make sense and some unfortunately will not. Here are praises to the spell checker!
I have taken pictures pretty much for as long as I can remember. This is of course my dads fault and he always seemed to be chasing us kids round taking pictures with differing cameras Zenit, Minolta and others whose names I cannot recall.
One of my earliest memories of taking pictures was when I was probably only 7 or 8 and were on holiday in Butlins. My parents, had bought me a ‘toy’ camera. It was a tiny plastic thing, probably with a pin hole lens and a metal lever to fire the shutter. Incredibly low tech but such fun. Not so sure the week long wait to get them back from Supasnaps was so good though.
I think one of the reasons that I enjoy photography so much is I can get bored easy and love to create things. However there is a huge flaw in my need to create….I can neither draw nor paint….give me a ruler and a pencil and I will give you a curve. Give me a pair of scissors and a straight line and I can show you jagged. No idea why, but I just cannot do those essential things. However give me a camera, maybe some lights and I can create. Sometimes the images are even presentable.
