My First Camera

A Kodak Instamatic 100.

Owned it for eight years. Loved it to death. Mourned its loss (at Camp Hess Kramer, near the Volleyball courts, August 1978.)

I envy kids today, able to learn photography by shooting hundreds of photos at no cost. I cannot remember how much money and time it cost me to pay for developing and printing my first several dozen goofs.
