I got my first real camera when I was about fourteen. Sure I had
one of those silly 110 pocket cameras, but they rarely took very
good photos. My first 35mm camera was a Pentax K1000, which I still
own and use regularly. It is completely manual -- no autofocus,
no auto exposure, not even a motorized film advance. I have used
this camera to take photos for my high school yearbook; taken pictures
at many vacation spots including England, Germany, and several western
states. I have even tried my hand at taking pictures of star trails
and other astronomical phenomena.
I also have a point and shoot 35mm camera that I mainly use for holiday pictures and for taking along on hiking trips. It is an Olympus Infinity TWIN. It is weatherproof and has a simple twin focal length design -- i.e. no zoom. It also has accompanied me on many vacations and other travels.
This page will feature selected photographs that I have taken over the years, particularly those photos that I am proud of or that have some special meaning for me.
