ONE MOMENT AFTer ANOther

Behind Grey's in Black & White

        I took my first picture with a shoe box camera when I was in second grade at Bond Hill Elementary. I remember being mystified by the scientific magic and inspired by the simplicity  of taking pictures. I got it. In a childlike way. I loved that shoe box camera. I wore it out. There wasn't enough tape on the planet to hold it together. By the end of the week it was gone but what I learned has lasted my lifetime. My father gave me my first camera. A Kodak Signet 35. Made in the USA in 1956. Built like a tank. It was used along with any camera I had on me at the moment to capture the images found in these galleries.
