I was always drawing when I was a kid, but my uncles old cameras at my Grandmothers house always fascinated me. They didn't have film, but I didn't care. It was fun. I got my first "one-time-use"-camera from my Grandparent's when I turned 8 and I have no idea about how many cameras I've used since. (I think I made my mom crazy when I used so many cameras just taking pictures of my rabbits).
