    Hey, wait a minute, that's the intro to the other group!

    Seriously, I first picked up a camera (my parent's Brownie Hawkeye) around
    1964 or so, while living in France (Daddy was a Sergeant you see). The first picture
    I took that I remember taking was of Mont St. Michel Abby on the Normandy coast- blurry,
    blown out, but it was mine!
    Still have that print, and much has changed but much remains the same!

    Age and elbow issues forced me to sell my beloved Canon equipment, and now I
    am a recent arrival to the lilliputian world of Fuji!
    Hurray, and may it always remain so!

    (Fuji Xe-1/14 2.8/18-55 kit/60macro)
    And, I can use my Minolta MD lenses!

    Thanks!

    Hi and welcome!

    I have to say, I really wish I kept the very first picture I have ever taken, I reckon it'll really so much to me now everytime I look at it.

    Btw, I have also kept most of my Minolta MD lenses, though they don't get used much these days :th_salute:

    I've been to Sacramento, but didn't take any pictures. Just picked up a hire car and left in the direction of Grass Valley. But I've taken pictures at Mont St Michel and it's a wonderful place and much like St Michaels Mount in Cornwall, which I visited two years ago.

    The first pictures I remember taking were from the top of the Scott Monument in Edinburgh, with my Dad's Olympus Trip. I guess they're amongst the collection of family slides somewhere.

    Welcome to the site.
