Kristine (Krissy) at grandma's house pretending to use an old camera.
My first camera! Given to me by my Grandmother. It might not have had any film in it, but I sure pretended it did. It wasn't until I was 12 when my parents gave me multiple disposable cameras as a test to see if I could handle a real one. On my thirteenth birthday, my brother gave me a Kodak Advantix that I used for many years. Once the digital age began my parents gave me Kodak Easy Share as a Christmas Present. I thought it was the best camera ever complete with its own printer. After I proved to my folks that I was responsible and had a passion for capturing moments in time, they upgraded me to a Canon Easy Share. This began my love of Canon products. I now have the camera and numerous lens I could only dream of as a kid, the Canon Mark III.
A fun fact about Kristine is that she is extremely patient. Patient enough to take her cat on outdoor adventures with her. She takes Yoda backpacking, kayaking, paddle boarding, cross-country skiing, etc. You name it and the cat is probably with her. Why doesn't she just get a dog some might ask? Well one day she intends to, but don't think for a minute that the dog will be replacing the cat. She will just have two adventure buddies to go with!
