THE OCCASIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER
I got my first camera as a boy, a tiny Kodak Brownie that took very poor black and white photos, but I had fun with it.
In high school I borrowed a 35mm SLR from the art class and did some real "artsy" photography for the first time.
After starting work at DC Comics in 1977, my then boss Jack Adler, who was a great photographer, helped me pick out a fine Nikon pro-quality SLR and over the years I bought a number of lenses for it. I mainly took pictures while on vacation or during holidays.
In 2003 I finally put all that heavy equipment to rest and went digital with a pocket-sized Olympus C-730. It has a 10 power optical zoom and I think takes great pictures. It's a little difficult to use in low light situations, but generally I'm very happy with it, and haven't missed the Nikon at all. It just occurred to me that the Olympus is about the same size as the old Brownie. There's a lesson there somewhere...
In the sidebar are a small selection of favorite pictures. I'll probably be adding more as time goes on.
