My first camera was a gift from my parents on my Catechism Confirmation Day, which meant I became a fully privileged member of our family church.

The camera was a “Brownie” brand, with a built in flash attachment. Little tiny bulbs had to be inserted into the flash compartment if a picture were to be taken in dim, or dark, lighting.

And imagine — the camera filmed only in black and white!
