It was in 1970. My mom bought me my very first camera. A Polaroid colorpack 2.
No sooner I got it! I began taking pictures. Anything that did/did not move? I took a picture of it! Seeing pictures of what I took. In B & W 30 seconds. Color 60 seconds.
My parents! As low income as they were. Because of my dad working as a warehouse man. We were able to get many things and have it taken out his check each week.
It lead to buying a Kodak pocket camera. In the 70’s! It came with stickers to (as they put it!) individualize your camera. There was some guy. That had the same sticker that I had. He said to me:”That’s my id sticker!” “Take it off!” Of course! I did not! The stickers came with each & every pocket camera. So! Carbon copies!
I was like a kid in a candy store!!!!!!
