My first camera was an old box brownie I used a few times when I was six years old. I opened the back of the camera to see the pictures and was puzzled to find the blank film. I would have felt much better with a digital camera! I had a new camera when I was nine and have two albums of charming black and white photos of people and pets. My cameras became more sophisticated as I grew, exploring the full range, but now I am having lots of fun with a Canon Powershot with a big zoom lens. It is quick and easy to use, light enough for me, and great for bird and animal photography. I love macros too, and so far I have not been disappointed. Heartfelt images is my photo blog, so I can share my creativity and love of the natural world with you!
