THE STORY OF A CRAB, MY DAD, AND A KODAK

Like many of the photographers I read about, they remember their first camera. I do too.  I had a little Kodak Brownie. As a child, I snapped everything. I loved taking photos of family, animals and the pretty places we visited in my childhood. Although I do not know what ever happened to the hundreds of photos I took as I child, I do have my favorite set.

At eight years old, I knew my portfolio needed some action shots. The beach was a perfect backdrop and my father was my subject. Now I needed to create the action. As luck would have it, a crab crossed beneath my feet, and BOOM I had my scene. I crept over to my father, stuck the crap down his pants, and clicked away¡ AS one claw engaged onto his backside, i got my shot¡ There was a sequence of three images but the actual :IT MOMENT: hasn;t been found just yet¡
