Another lifetime interest

I was loaned a small Boots Beirette 35mm camera by my aunt when I was 12. Very quickly I found a new interest, leading to a new way to look at the world. I   won   some   junior   competitions,   got   a   Saturday   job   in a   camera   shop,   and   bought   my   first   SLR,   a   Zenit   3M, when    I    was    14.    All    my    pocket    money    went    on photography,   the   biggest   expense   being   the   film   and paper.    A    local    youth    club    had    a    darkroom    which allowed   me   to   print   my   pictures,   although   6”x8”   was big   due   to   the   cost.   I   took   mainly   black   and   white, although   I   also   took   colour   slides,   mainly   Gratispool, Ferrania   and   Orwo,   Agfa   and   Kodachrome   being   too expensive    for    me.    I    gained    an    interest    in    macro photography.   when   20,   at   the   University   of   Leeds,   I was    President    of    the    Photography    Club.    As    I    grew older    I    had    several    more    SLRs,    the    best    being    a Pentax MX. By    my    late    40s    I’d    grown    a    bit    jaded,    I    found    my camear   gear   too   heavy,   and   I   sold   up.   However   as digital   cameras   became   more   capable,   I   started   again, progressing     through     point-and-shoot     cameras,     a couple    of    bridge    cameras,    and    finally    to    micro    4/3 compact    system    cameras.    Presently    I    use    mainly Olympus,   with   OMD-EM1   mark   2   and   OMD-EM5   mark 2   bodies,   plus   a   pile   of   Olympus   and   some   Panasonic lenses.     These     are     marvellous     cameras     -     light, compact,   high   quality   and   very   capable.   Many   other makers   offer   superb   cameras   as   well   of   course,   and all   offer   pros   and   cons   over   others,   but   the   Olympus suits me well.
