On article Throwback Thursday: Our first cameras (394 comments in total)

My first camera was SLR look-alike with Minor Scout or Scout Minor in the name. Anyone knows more? It was a fixed aperture, fixed focus plastic lens element thingie which cost me around 2 USD. I was six years old and very proud. It had some metallic parts that made it much more advanced than the Diana cameras my older sister and brother had bought some months earlier at half the price including a roll of 120 film.
I still have some copies of pictures my sister took with the Diana, and let me ensure you that those pictures wouldn't really compete with todays digital images if pixelpeeped!
On my twelfth birtday I got a real step-up present: a Kodac Instamatic, the kind with flash cubes. I still have some pictures taken with that camera, from a school trip to Rome. It was my main (only) photography tool for about 15 years, till I bought my first SLR, a Pentax Program A in 1985.

On article Street Photographers test freedom to shoot in London (184 comments in total)

Thanks for a very important video. Unlike some other commenters, I think the "security" guards went far beyond their rights. To claim some sort of authority (God-given or what?) and trying to scare off people engaged in perfectly legal activities should be, and I believe is, a legal offence. There is no reason to be forgiving to that kind of behaviour.
Good work from the side of the authentic police officials. Proffessional!
