I got my first camera when I was 10 years old, it was a box camera (Zeiss) and took fairly large negatives, 6 x 9 cm.  It only took 8 pictures on each roll of film.  Of course, black and white...  But, due to the size of its negatives, these pictures were quite sharp.  From this I graduated in my teens to a 35 mm Zeiss camera, then to a "Honeywell Pentax."  The last is a single lens reflex camera.

Besides all the B&W pictures, I have thousands of color slides documenting my family and life over a period of half a century.  Lately I am using digital photography (Olympus C-3030 zoom and Olympus C-2100 Ultra Zoom.)  Digital photography is really enjoyable since I can take a picture and have it on my computer or printed in full color in a matter of minutes!  All the pictures shown in this website were taken by these two digital cameras (except those pictures from friends, with a note to that effect.)
