I'm a non- practicing geologist.
I got my first camera (and picture) at the age of seven. I'm afraid I have improved my skills not much since then.
Pencils, pens, crayons, and brushes have danced on my fingers since I have memory (my parents' home walls remember it very well...).
Today, my daughter says my photos are nice, but that I can only draw monsters...
Possibly she's right.
