There’s a first time for everything… – by Joe Thomlinson

“There’s a first time for everything.” Literally. Metaphorically. Inevitably……..

About a month ago I was at a friends house, a friend who happens to be a photography enthusiast. I was sat in his living room and whilst gazing upward at the shelf to the left of the chimney breast which displays his dozen or so cameras I said “I’d quite like to get into taking photos.” Then as quick as the thought had entered my mind and found it’s way out of my mouth into the ears of my long time creative compadre, he replied “here you go. Have that”, and handed me an Olympus 35RC.
