I had a camera when I was a kid, or maybe I borrowed my mum’s or sister’s camera, I’m not sure. I know that it used 110 film though, because that I remember very well. At some point, we changed to a 35mm instant camera, and I remember finding the film depressingly complex compared to the 110, and blew a few trying to wind it onto the spools and failing (before any of that stuff was automated).
I enjoyed taking photographs, and remember one school trip to Warkworth Castle, or maybe it was somewhere in York, when I took lots of photographs, mainly of ducks. One teacher had words with me, about wasting film on ducks, but I quite liked the idea of taking some wild life shots.
