Scattered Light 163

Do you remember your first camera? I’d imagine for many people these days their first camera might actually be their phone… I bought my first camera on my first trip to Japan, back in 2004 and as I’ve been hunting through my photo archives for a family project, I rediscovered that first bunch of photos & thought I’d post a few. From memory the camera was a tiny Sony point & shoot, pocket size so I tended to have it with me all of the time…

photo #1 = dinner!

moral of the story: the best camera is the one you have with you!
