19th August is World Photography Day
I can clearly remember the Christmas I got my very first camera, a Kodak Photo Sport Highlite Tele, I was twelve years old (just a few decades ago) and it was the best present ever. I had finished the roll of 24 images before the remaining presents were opened and the rest as they say is history. Makes me laugh that that cheap piece of plastic with a 25mm-43mm prinzmatic lens changed the way I saw the world forever.
I still have the box it came in, kept mementos and nicknaks in it but sadly the actual camera is nowhere to be found. A couple of months back I found a similar model on ebay, and I’m waiting for something special to try out the vintage roll of film that came with it.
I’m always bemoaning cameras with built-in flash but those flash cubes did seriously bad things to photographs.
Make sure you pick up your camera on World Photography Day and make some pictures.
What was your first camera ? Do you remember the first picture/s you took ?
