My first 35mm camera was a Minolta, I purchased from my paper route money, at the age of 13. Apparently, paper routes must have paid well, because I went back to get a telephoto lens. I rode the city bus to the mall, in Southern California, to make my big purchase. This was the mid 70’s, I didn’t know about Canon at the time. I enjoyed photography as a young adult, then life got busy and photography dropped off the menu. As the children grew, I started taking pictures again. Interestingly, the images were taken for evaluating the mechanics of baseball players. Parents were excited with the images and they turned out quite good. I started taking pictures of game action and improved my technique and camera equipment.
In 2008, I was planning a trip to Alaska and purchased a newer nicer camera at the last minute. I learned to use it during that trip, which is not the best thing to do when you are travelling. Again, in 2010, I upgraded to a DSLR with changeable lenses and better resolution. As time progressed, I was able to purchase better lenses and, or course have a list of equipment I would like to add to my bag!!!
I have spent the past year learning photoshop,so I could create a different story, more than one image can tell.
