65 of 65
1/17/19. 65 years ago today my parents gave me a Kodak Brownie camera on my 4th birthday and I made my first photograph. Pack rat that I am, I still have it: a snapshot of the party as seen from my seat of honor at the head of the table. There's my older brother opposite, camera in hand, with my dad behind, holding a movie camera while taking a light reading with a handheld meter.
Over the next two months I'll be mining my archive and posting an image a day from each of my 65 years of photography.
