What made me start takin photos? Photography always interested me and when I got my first digital camera back in July of 04 I went crazy. Took over 1000 photos by December and now that I got my new camera for Christmas (Fuji S5100) I've taken several hundred photos with it as well.
My favorite photographic themes? Architecure is always cool. Abstract and conceptual are awesome too.
FUJIFILM S5100 (my first digi cam was an HP Photosmart 733)
I'm also looking at purchasing a Fuji S7000 later this year.
