I love past and present I know I have no technical knowledge but artistically I love them spesh your daughter, I am a sucker for vintage photography , thank you

I'm glad you liked the pics. I should have noted that in the 2nd set of photos the little girl in the wagon is my youngest daughter who is now the mother of the little boy in the lower picture. I hope it doesn't take you 30 or 40 years to notice some improvement like it did for me !

This is one of my Sister's favorite pictures.

Taken in 1972, I was 15. Minolta Hi-Matic 9, with "E-Z" Flash. Set the Guide-Number, camera used "Follow-Focus" to change the F-Stop as you focus.

Kodachrome or Ektachrome... I forget.

Late 1970s, taught the daughter of one of the students how to use a Nikon F2a. I think she was 9. Her shots came out pretty good, and I think one was in the University Year Book.

Shot with a Nikon F Photomic, 43~86 F3.5 zoom. Panatomic-X (ASA 32) in Microdol. I took notes, found them with the negatives when I scanned these in over 10 years ago. The Nikon F Photomic had a built-in Incident light meter that I used most of the time. Panatomic-X in Microdol had extremely fine grain, was amazing stuff. Long gone.

I still have both cameras used for the pictures, and the F2a that "Zoe" is using.

This was taken in the mid to late 90's with a disposable "Panoramic" camera:

I didn't own a camera for years and never really thought about photography until I started messing with my wife's point and shoot. This is the first image I posted here in 2009:

This was last Spring (when I started) using my Canon Powershot in Monroe Park:
$543961_3252473363622_2075045638_n.jpg

This is about last month with my Nikon D5100:
$156294_348536671912311_998021464_n.jpg

Yeah, it's not the same subject, but you can see my skills with composing the shot have at least improved a little. I think how good you are is proportional to how much you practice. I wish I had taken some product shots when I first started so I could show you a better comparison.
