Hmmm...15...1979...let's see....

Dad died in February, the same day that a blizzard started
In October, as the Orioles were blowing a 3-1 lead in the World Series to the Pirates, one of my dogs died.
In November, my other dog was diagnosed with cancer. We had to have him put down.
In December, our cat was hit by a car.

Can we just forget when I was 15?

The winter of age fifteen I was tagging along behind my parents in Prague whining that I cooold....my feet huuurt...why couldn't I hold the cameraaa...that guy on the subway was giving me the creeeps...I wanna eeeat soooon...

Yeah, a 110 was my first camera too. I had asked for a camera for Christmas picturing in my head an OM-1. Instead I got this little bit of plastic with a lens in it that actually snapped on to a roll of 110. I think I was 7 yo. What a piece of junk. The photos looked like what you would see if you had cataracts and were looking through a dirty coke bottle. I always had more expensive thoughts than my relatives though. I remember I asked for a remote control airplane one year. Got a plane that had strings attached and you just swung it around in a big circle. Technically remote but jeez, made me feel like they thought I was retarded. At least it taught me one thing. If you're going to ask for something, be specific.

I was competing in a long distance horse riding sport (Competitive Trail Riding) and got a National Championship in it that summer. In between competitions and training I was pining after John Taylor of Duran Duran, learning to drive fast on dirt roads and slide around corners (only resulted in one flat tire), hanging out at the shopping mall (now avoided like the plague) learning to live on Bacon double cheesburgers from Burger King taking some pictures here & there. fortunately survived lots of fast driving and a greasy high fat diet gracefully (thank goodness for a great metabolism!) Still ride horses, but don't compete much anymore, now I photograph the competitions!

I was lucky. Living with my ranger brother in Rocky Mountain National Park, hiking mountain trails and fly fishing everyday. And chasing rangers daughters by night.

man... 15.... I was working at Tim Horton's for $3.20/hour, going to boarding school, and pretending I was a kick ass ninja!!! :-)

couldn't decide whether I was grown up or not - wanted to ride horses all day on one hand andon the other hand spent a lot of time listening to live bands in London and dreaming of getting Ringo Starr to fall in love with me! (By the way met him recently and when my daughter (27) saw him she asked how I could have fancied him I must admit I couldn't answer her! Why do your heroes have to get old as well????)

Dug up a couple morefrom my teen days. The first pic I think I just turned 14 and the second pic I was 16. So, riding motorcycles in illegal places, camping and drinking Coors probably covers those 2 years pretty well.

running around with those 110 film cameras taking photos of every cat and dog in the neighborhood.... just realizing I still do the same, only with a digital camera ;o)

I was caddying for grumpy old dudes and getting yelled at/running from cops for skateboarding everywhere i wasn't supposed to. Oh sometimes I would be just carrying my skateboard and getting yelled at too. Sometimes that still happens to me. No more caddying though.

Cheerleader, worked at Hardees (hated my boss), had my first and only art exhibit at the local college (thought I was going to be the next big thing), made sneaking out of the house an artform, quit being a band nerd (found out that was a social handicap), and my most famous line..."Where's the PARTY?" Most embarrassing memory... loved Vanilla Ice.

It was my first year out of school. Had about 5 different jobs, grew my hair long, wich made me a target for all the Skinheads that were at their peak around that time, took lots of drugs and had no interest in photography, that came later.
