I started with a Brownie & later got an SRT-101, which still works. Living in Europe, prints/slides were not cheap for me and therefore I had to be picky with my shots. Being an on-and-off photographer for over five decades, I got into digital in 2000. Six years ago, though, I undertook the hobby with much more fervor. It's tremendous fun taking photography lessons, attending workshops, and just clicking away at practically anything by myself or with a group. Thanks to being able to click 'Delete,' I have a lot more freedom to experiment with light.
