There was something about watching the image immerse or developed after receiving the prints back from the lab which fascinated me.
But I could only fantasize about owning my own camera until the day I ordered my own from a mail order catalogue. It was a Russian model, a Zenith E or something like that.
When it arrived I went around shooting anything and everything that moved. I waited many hours for clouds to snake across the sky just to get composition right.
Photography remains one of my greatest passions and I cannot see that love dying any time soon!
