    Paul from Santa Fe here. Been taking pictures it seems since they invented film. Never became famous, but I can say I actually used an old Kodak brownie box camera when I was ten. The camera was new at that time so you figure it out. Now taking pictures with smaller cameras but always only for fun. Mostly put away the film and now its digital with the epl-1 and X1. I'm not much on the technical stuff but do enjoy seeing the work of others. Happy you younger folks are around.

    Hi Paul, my childhood camera was a Kodak Instamatic. I can't remember which one I had, but I'd know it if I saw it. I spent many hours taking photos of my family, our dog, squirrels (yes, squirrels:rolleyes:) and I still have at least one photo album from those days. I used to love to watch the little flash bulb bubble up, too.:biggrin:

    I do hope you'll post some photos and I'd love to hear your views on those two cameras you have now. I have an E-PL1 but keep looking at that Leica X1 and wondering about it.:wink:
