THE STORY OF A CRAB, MY DAD AND A KODAK CAMERA
Like all other photographers, I really was always a photographer. I wanted to remember the place, emotion and people. Yes, I had a little Kodak Brownie. As a child, I snapped literally everything, animals, family and the pretty places we visited in my childhood. I took thousands of funny and silly photos and a few still remain. When I was eight, we were living overseas in Italy. A summer along the Adriatic coast. The beach was the perfect backdrop and my father was the perfect subject. Now I needed to create the action. As luck would have it, a crab crossed my and there it was ... the action part of the photo. I got my sister to join the photoshoot and had her tick the crab into my father's bathing suit! As the claws engaged his backside, I got my shot¡ There was a sequence of three images but the actual MOMENT of impact was lost but the memory ... never! He was really upset with me, can you tell. But, I got the shot!
