A Kodak Brownie Holiday was my first camera, a wondrous gift for a little boy in 1957. I ran outside and took my very first picture — a shot of our next-door neighbor. Mr. Weikel stood there in his work clothes, hands on hips, looking right at me. The joy in his big smile made the picture a masterpiece in my young eyes, although his expression is indiscernible in the blurry photo. A kid with his first camera: it was magic! All these years later every time I shoot, that little kid shows up. And it still feels like magic.
