I began taking pictures a long time ago with a brownie camera.  I loved the way it squeaked when you turned the button to advance the film. Later, it was an Olympus where I promptly lost all my pictures on my first trip to Europe due to a faulty rewind button. Next up was a hand-me-down Nikon Nikkormat with a great 50mm lens. I acquired a Vivitar zoom lens and boy, did I have a lot of fun with that camera. As time went on, the camera went into the closet, and then digital hit the market. My first digital was a small Canon that was a great little pocket camera. It reignited my passion for photography and slowly the cameras have grown. Now, I am a Nikon girl, so I stick to what I know and enjoy taking pictures with my latest.
