My love for photography began as a child and soon consumed a hefty chunk of my paltry household choir allowance. As a tween, mowing lawns and such afforded my own Kodak Instamatic along with more film. Come high-school graduation, the gift I asked for and received was an Olympus OM-2n, an inspiring leap forward from a plastic point-n-shoot. Hourly wages soon bought additional lenses, darkroom equipment and my first rolls of slide film. Whereas my erstwhile plastic-not-fantastic Instamatic was never more than a sporadic companion, my metal Olympus SLR became a veritable sidekick, especially during a university semester of conflict resolution studies in Jerusalem and another of Spanish in Seville, Spain.
