Challenge has finished
Recently I submitted photos to several challenges that I took decades ago as a teenager. They did not do too badly, and one was actually in the top ten. Now it is your turn. Show an early photo, perhaps the first photo that you took that you believe was worth showing to others but that you never submitted to a contest or challenge. For some of you that will be a piece of ancient history. For others, it will be more recent history. You must indicate in the notes your age now and the age that you were when you took the photo. The ‘honor system’ prevails. Please read all of the rules below before participating. Let’s have some fun with this one.

|Taken:||Monday, 7th August, 1978|
|Focal length:||100 mm|
|Shutter speed:||120 sec|
|Notes:||Kodachrome 25 film. The camera was set to high ISO to get a meter reading, then the exposure time adjusted accordingly. For this camera and film, metering inaccuracies in low light offset reciprocity failure beautifully. Shutter held open manually. Numbers as near as I recall.|
