Your Ancient History

Challenge #5 in the Eye of the Beholder series. Hosted by wrosenthal.
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.

Long b4re I figure out that I did actually like taking photographs or learn how to use a camera. This was one of the first with my first camera a Sony T9 point and shoot where I tried a different composition from what my friends and I were shooting the St Lois Gateway Arch at the Riverfront. was 27 then and am a ripe old 30 now.
