Personal touch

For some reason I kept this picture with me for a lot of years. I confess that I send lots of pictures – paper or digital – to the trash. It’s not a question of being a good or a bad picture, it has to say something or have a meaning…

It must have been 28 years now. At that time I had no idea I would ever be a photographer. For lots of years I thought I would be a lawyer like family and many friends and neighbours.

And now, here I am. It all has to start somewhere. Some may call it a mistake, I like to think of it as a prediction: photography is better when you can give it your personal touch 😉

And it all started here: A Kodak EKTRA 200 camera that used to belong to my brother … and that “personal touch” in lots of my first pictures.
