    This is the very first pic that I ever took with an SLR. July 1975, Redstone Arsenal, Huntsville, AL.

    Sitting down seemed a good idea, as it cut way down on the swaying back and forth. Unfortunately I had no idea that the camera wouldn't make that waist high grass disappear like my eye did. I mean I could see right through it, the camera should too, right? Ha! Pretty good composition though if I say so myself. :shock:

    So, post your own first pic, 'cuz I need a laugh & I went first. :lol:

    I think this was my first picture with my first SLR, way back in Nov.

    Link gone by now :cry:

    But this was the first photo I taken, while not just pointing and clicking.

    That's gorgeous.

    I remember taking photos on a vacation when I was really young, but don't know where those are. My first photo when I decided 'hey! I like photography!' was this one:

    My very first picture as a professional photographer. I was SO nervous before this shoot.

    I have a box of slides taken by me in 1975 somewhere, so instead of asking my sister to find my very first pics (taken 2 years earlier), I might at long last go find that box and try to scan one of those slides for this theme!?!?
