as a 10-yr old, I took my very first camera to the Melbourne, Australia Olympic Games back in '56.   Had many cameras since then ..... but the quality of my work is still questionable  :thumbsup:

Not saying, but here's a hint.

I was taking sports and school club photos for the high school yearbook with a Graflex wide format camera back in the late 50's. Dang, that thing and the sack of flash bulbs and film to go with it was heavy to lug around between classes and sports events, but it got me out of study hall a lot. The camera belonged to the school. I had a Kodak Pony 828 for my own use.

I’m 67 in 2 hours.
Only way I can put it.  Unfortunately, I’m a prime number.
