I first became interested in photography at the age of 5 or 6 when I would "help" my dad in his darkroom and received my first camera for my 8th birthday.  A simple affair, it had just a wireframe viewfinder and a shutter release, taking eight shots on 127 film.  The first seven images were quickly exposed, but I saved the last to take a photo of my dad in his car when he arrived home from work.  It turned out as I had imagined it and years later I discovered that this was what Ansel Adams, among others, described as visualisation.

My camera today could not be more different, but my enthusiasm for photography is undiminished.  Very few of my shots are planned and it is an adventure, not knowing what I will find.  The world's greatest hobby?  I think so.
