MY OLD FRIEND..........Carries so many BEAUTIFUL GHOSTS
The first time I fell in love with photography I was a little girl..I saw black and white photos taken by my Aunt, they amazed me. I was smitten! I took photography class in high-school and a class in college..dark room and all.
It was fascinating and magical seeing your work come to life. ( although not too pleasant with such strong chemicals) I don't remember much from class..( I was always in my own world ha ha and like to do things my own way)..but I always used my instincts and artistic nature to lean on..
I have not yet fallen out of love with taking pictures and creating imagery. I became obsessed with Only Black and White photography for a long time..I never thought I'd ever ever take a color picture...or ever use a digital camera ha ha! I was that artsy melancholy girl all in black with her camera everywhere she went..(hmm..still the same girl I suppose...but no longer melancholy)
It seems Forever Ago..that my awesome brother gave me this snazzy little Pentax camera you see here in these pictures....knowing how much I loved it..plus I was always borrowing his camera! What a sweet guy! I took it out the other day( heavy little guy)..and it brought back memories!
Made me want to go back to using it!
I have realized I have never bought myself a camera...ever!
My brother gave me his!
Then my first digital camera( was like a UFO to me) was also a gift I received; a Konica Minolta which is what I have used the past 8 years or so and loooove it.
and Now again, I just received a new camera as a gift , a Nikon.
Another UFO..I am sure I will grow to enjoy too!
I think though..Unearthing this wicked little Pentax
has stolen my heart..and I am smitten again!
Maybe I'll be looking for a darkroom soon!
