Can't remember being without a camera. From old 620 Brownie box camera as a boy through 35mm to digital. Recording life preserves. I learned that too late-a hard lesson from Viet Nam. I embrace all aspects of photography. This best theme or type is the one I'm doing right now. Have several 35mm cameras in retirement. Use a Nikon digital SLR now. My Kosovar friend Elmaz showed me the international value of friendship. Peace.
