I'VE always loved snapping photos.  I remember way back having a Kodak Brownie box camera, the type with view ports on top and side.  I graduated into 110 culminating with a Pentax Auto 110, which for those of you that don't know, was a very compact (2"x4") SLR with interchangeable lenses.  I still have that camera although it was ruined when our raft got swamped one year on the Bow when we nearly swamped and turned over down town in Kensington.

I had an Advantix camera for awhile, compact again and with a simple drop-in film canister.  I even had a disc camera (maker unknown) and several equipped to take photos underwater.  Eventually I took to carrying a 35mm SLR during latter travels.

Once digital was introduced, my snapping life changed for the better.  No more worrying about losing a canister or three, or that special shot you took in Cordoba, didn't work out!  When traveling by bike, space is always a prime consideration.  Modern digitals from my first logitech, which held 80 photos and no way of viewing them, is still in use as Brenda's skype camera.  I've had many since those early digital days, they are compact, can store a huge amount of photos, are adjustable and like my Olympus, sometimes even waterproof.

My photo albums (remember those) are stuffed full of thousands of prints, that cost horrendous amounts of money to print, and my database has tens of thousands of digital images I have emailed all over the world.

Here's a few from the past...
