The key to this weeks challenge is to get the whole garden, not individual flowers…

Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Flashback

Since it seems we here at Sunday Stills are doing mostly archive pics lets take it to the extreme…..
This weeks challenge is to go as far back in your archives and pick out some of the oldest pics you have taken since beginning taking pics. They don’t have to be perfect pics just ones you have taken and add a description of the type of camera used.

I started taking pics back in 1986 when I joined the Army and was stationed in Hawaii with the 25th infantry division. Both pics were taken with my venerable Kodak 110 cartridge camera, nothing fancy but I had it on all my deployments. While not the best quality it worked. The first pic I took in the Phillipines during training and the bottom pic was during a Quick Reaction Force drill at Schofield Barracks, basically get up get ready to deploy and wait..
