When I was in elementary school, my parents bought me a plastic film camera. That sparked my interest in photography. I shot an entire roll of film in one day! Then my parents explained how “developing film” worked, and how much it cost compared to my allowance. When I was in high school, my first job was at a 1-hour film processing store. Our specialty was developing pictures for real estate appraisals (and amateur porn). I used a film camera with basic zoom abilities, and was captivated by photography. In the late 1990's, I was given one of the first consumer digital cameras. The camera stored 10 low-resolution pictures, but it was amazing! I later upgraded to Canon Powershot cameras, and then graduated to a Canon Rebel DSLR. More recently I take most of my pictures with a cameraphone, but also use a Ricoh GR and Sony A7R. Over the years, I have taken tens of thousands of pictures, a subset of which I think are worth sharing here.
