Never one to miss an opportunity

Tara at Sticky Fingers had tagged me in a photography meme.. and me being one who likes to post photographs at any given opportunity, am more than happy to oblige.

My first photograph.

I was never really into photography at all until 2004, when I got a little point and shoot camera. I loved the fact that I could walk around, take photographs, go indoors and upload them onto the computer. I could see them straight away! Amazing! This little camera opened up a creative side to me that had been missing. It meant that I could show others what I could see through my eyes and how I saw the world around me.

As I said, this was my very first photo that I thought "oh wow, look what I can do". It's taken over my garden fence early morning on January 1st 2004. It was actually printed in a photography magazine (my claim to fame) and caused me to get hooked over the next two years and then spend a helluva lot of money on a DSLR and camera kit. Although comparative to what can be spent on camera gear, I've been very low budget.

I am very lucky in that I do get some spectacular sunrises over the garden fence and I can often be seen during the early hours of a winter morning, wandering around in my dressing gown, freezing my bits off, camera in hand, to get a sunrise shot LOL If you want to see some of them CLICK HERE.

So now I get to pass this on to 5 other people. Hmmm, it might be difficult because I don't know many people in the blogging world, but here's what you have to do:

1. Open the first/oldest photo folder in your computer library
2. Scroll to the 10th photo
3. Post the photo and the story behind it. Tag 5 or more people to continue the thread.

The Compulsive Worrier I KNOW she has some wonderful photographs
Clinically Fed Up who I've only just discovered but she loves her photography too.
Kellogsville again, only just discovered this blog, but she likes her piccies too
Mum's gone to... I'm sure with all her travels, she must have some lovely photos

In fact, if you want to join in, feel free. You don't need to be nominated specifically, if you fancy it.. get posting.
