My father was a photographer when he was in the army, so there was always a still camera or a movie camera around at every family gathering. Besides shooting with a Graflex Speed Graphic 4x5 when enlisted in the army, his camera of choice became the Rolleiflex twin lens reflex that shot 120mm film. That was my first camera that my father handed down to me. Ever since I was a young boy, I can remember the amazement whenever my father took me into his darkroom to show me the magic of photography. The red safety light, the big enlarger along with trays full of liquid that would magically produce an image on a blank piece paper after about a minute or so. I thought that was just so cool.
