I have been involved with photography since the early age of thirteen years. Beginning with the chemical process of making
black & white contact (same size) prints, which I achieved with the support of a generous donation of some basic equipment from a complete stranger. If it were not for that totally random encounter, who knows where my interest would lie at this later part of my life. I suspect the stranger spotted an attentive response in my young eyes as he demonstrated the magic that (wet) photography can evoke.
