OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Tanzania.

After reading a fantastic new book set in Prague (review of A Year And A Day by Isabelle Broom coming tomorrow) I was inspired to fish out the photos I snapped when I visited the magical city many moons ago.

Once I’d looked at them I got a bit hooked scrolling through various albums. What struck me is that I’ve enjoyed taking photos for far longer than I realised (and that’s only going back to when I got my first digital camera).

If you’d have asked me I would have said I was bitten by the bug when I got my DSLR in 2012 but, while I’m not suggesting they are anything special, I was clearly attempting to take nice photos long before that.

Anyway, there hasn’t been much time for taking pictures this week so I thought I’d include some old shots from various places. I was very lucky to be able to travel for work as well as holidays.

I’ve had two digital point and shoots, a Fuji FinePix (2650) and my trusted Canon Powershot (SD750), which travelled with me. The Canon, especially, took a bit of a battering in backpacks but always did me proud so much so I’ve kept hold of it (I turned it on last night and it still has battery!).

As I was looking through them I kept thinking what fun I’d have with my big camera now. I’ll just have to go back!

Beautiful Zante.
When did you first realise you were interested in photography? Are there any places you would like to go back and photograph again?
