My start in photography was an interesting one. As a youngster, I grew up in Tonawanda, NY - a suburb of Buffalo, NY - within spitting distance of Niagara Falls. My bother and I were given a dollar a week as allowance for doing some basic chores around the house. My parents always kidded me about how I NEVER spent any of my money. Near the end of my junior year in high school, I was invited to work on the school yearbook - good thing too, that is where I met my future wife! After using a couple of the "staff cameras," I got the bug and went home and told my parents I wanted to buy a camera. Not just ANY camera, but the most expensive one I could afford! After they woke up from fainting, they drove me to Delaware Camera Mart on Delaware road in Buffalo. That is where I plunked down ALL my savings - $101 and change, and went home with a brand new Hanimex Praktika Super TL! - yeah baby!

I put that bad boy through its paces and never looked back! I wonder whatever happened to that camera?
