The Friday Photo #92 – My first time

The first photo

No, not *that* first time.


That would be an entirely different kind of blog post.

This washed out, grainy, rather crappy image is not the usual sort of thing I post here every Friday.  There is absolutely nothing special about the picture itself – but what it represents to me is very special indeed.

It is the very first photo I took when I started my travels.  It was taken on a $10 disposable underwater camera while snorkelling in the clear blue waters of Hanauma Bay almost fourteen years ago.

Yes, I’m that old.

A few years later I took the print and scanned it in.  I have no idea where the original is now, so this shot and a few others like it are now the only photos I have of those four days in Hawaii en-route to Canada.

Looking at the quality of them now, that might not be such a bad thing.

I think I’ll just stick with the memories.

We're all going on a ... summer holiday
A bit of a ride in northern Thailand, part one
