This is quite literally a short story with pictures.
My first digital camera was a Kodak wait for it… 2 mega pixel camera and it cost $200! If you’re an early adopter-you get whacked.
Anyway, I would just shoot picture after picture just for the sheer convenience and joy of it. When un-inhibited or restrained by previous convention (i.e film), my technique loosened up.
I didn’t know that this story would unfold the way it did. I just kept shooting to see what would happen without intervening. I’ve picked the pivotal 4 pictures but there are plenty more. It’s actually quite amusing and I’ve made a slide show of it years ago. I may put it on YouTube.
My kids reactions are soooo dramatic. Years later, not much has changed…
