So this was the very first photograph that I ever took
….Rubbish isn’t it !
In my defence, I was only 11 and I just got my first SLR “Film” camera for Christmas, the EXAKTA RTL 1000 (I have one still today) and I was very excited to do something with it. So why not make your Mum go outside with a kitchen chair and read the newspaper? …. And yes it was a white Christmas! Hopefully, it wasn’t too long after this that I learnt to focus the thing properly!
Following the New Year, I was clearing some stuff out (as you do) thinking about 2018 and plans for my business, when I came across the photo which I had forgotten all about it. I was so glad I came across it as it has helped anchor me to the past, where/when my photography started and subsequently helped my think through what needs to happen in 2018.
