the first camera i remember using was a 110 film camera of the 1980s, the kind that could have easily been mixed up with a set of toy blocks. the prints were small, often featuring odd-angled takes of disney characters. in those days, i was taking pictures to remember vacations and backyard adventures and the occasional special event (special as defined by a seven year-old).
now, my equipment is a little different. my vacations and adventures have taken me a little further than the backyard. an event may be special whether yours or mine, once-in-a-lifetime or everyday. but the images still help us remember and tell a story.
