When I was in high school, I found this camera in a box (that clearly hadn't been touched in ages) in my parents' room. Although I had a Kodak instamatic camera that used film cartridges, this was my first 35mm film camera. Once I started taking pictures with it, I was hooked! I still have it, and yes, it still works.
Photography has always been a part of my life. In fact, a friend dubbed me the "mamarazzi" because I take so many pictures.
