I grew up reading Garfield comics. My brother and I would go to bed devouring them for years. This long running series from the talented Jim Davis is the most syndicated comic of all time.
I bought my first camera, a Soviet made Zenit-E SLR, in 1970. I still have the first roll of black and white 35mm film that I developed. The smell of developer and fixer from the countless hours I have spent in darkrooms is still imprinted in my brain. To this day I always carry a camera.
