    I want to open this thread because it's quite lucky for you to have someone photographs you all the way growing up now understanding that's what we are basically aiming to. They say photographers pity themselves for having no satisfying self pictures, well I've picked up 5 out of 300+ shots taken of my earlier days. Hope this thread means something to you too.

    Oh I forgot to mention, taken with Nikon FG-20 50mm and Fujifilm.

    048.

    Taken by my mom, using our Kodak 110 camera. I was the one who caught that fish!

    Again with the Kodak. Middle school journalism.

    Probably the same Nikon P&S. Road trip during college. White Sands National Monument. That's sand, not snow.

    I'll have to dig some out, but this one was already loaded up in flickr so I'll start with my first Easter egg hunt..... (please not my Dad's unusual compositional flair) ....probably shot on a Kodak Instamatic.

    Ah yes, that background looks familiar. :) Absolutely lovely photo!

    I spent 6 years touring the North American continent by motorcycle (wore out 8 bikes during that period) and spent quite a lot of that time in Key West. :) The photo taken in front of Rumrunners complex was shot with two of my best friends, local shock-jock celebrity Bill Hoebee from WAIL99.5 FM (also known as "The Southernmost Howard Stern") and Cowboy Timmy aka Amish Guy aka Hobo Cop. Known on the streets as Captain Kidd, Timmy had starred in a docu-dram-edy movie called "Have you seen Clem?" which won awards at the Wine Country Film Festival, Marco Island Film Festival, Key West Indiefest, and Telluride Indiefest. He has passed on now.

    OK, this was a good excuse to scan a few old photos - I need to get around to more of that anyway...

    Very young - my only really LITTLE kid shot. At least that I could find quickly:

    <a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/20889767@N05/6962294069/" title="Little Ray by ramboorider1, on Flickr"> 6962294069_6f82684bbc_m. "185" height="240" alt="Little Ray"></a>

    At about 12, with my Mom, Dad, and older brother and sister:

    About 18 - from college:

    Traveling in Europe in my early 20's with an old HS buddy. And with my constant companion - Pentax K1000. Evidently I had a second lens - I can't remember that part...

    Newly wed, outside of our first house - about 26 years old:

    My Jerry Garcia phase (or one of them):

    With my girls the day after the younger one was born. She's about to turn 23:

    Our 25th Anniversary, just a couple of years ago:
