I was about 10 years old when I got my first camera.
It was a Kodak Brownie Flash Six-20. It used 620 Roll film.
As I recall, I only used black & white film.
I had the flash attachment, but flash bulbs were hard to find, so I never used it.
I remember one trip the family took was to Washington, DC.
Unfortunately, the pictures are lost to history.
Here’s a description of that camera:

My second camera was a Kodak Instamatic 104. 126 cartridge film.It used the Flash Cube that offered four flash bulbs on a rotating cube. Easily obtainable at the time.
The camera was with me through high school and college.
I chose to use slide film, and I still have most of my photos that I could scan for some future project.
Here’s a description of that camera:

After college, it was time for me to get a “real camera”!.
I got a Mamiya/Sekor 500 DTL. 35mm SLR, M42 “universal” screw mount lens system. Over time, I had acquired a few lenses. Again, I used slide film and preferred the Kodak Etkachrome film or Fujifilm. I still have these photos that I could scan for some future project.
Here are two description of that camera:

After Years of using Digital Cameras, I purchased a Lomography Diana F+ from a local Camera Store in January, 2024. Then I purchased the "Diana F+ 75mm Premium Glass Lens" from Lomography.

Let the Adventure continue!
