  •  Great diary (5+ / 0-)

    My dad graduated in 1957, University of Iowa, photo-journalism and cinematography degree.  He knew a lot about this stuff, went to work for NASA at the "photo lab."

    I could never get interested in photography and always admired those kids who (kinda) followed in their parents' footsteps.  Once took a camera outside as a teenager to work up an interest and make Dad proud.  Took a bunch of pictures. Exclaimed a modest amount of success to dad.  He retorted:  "Why in hell did you go outside and take pictures?  The sky is BALD!"  (no clouds)

    Stupid me.
