Every photographer has that first time. The first photograph they took where they felt like a photographer. This was mine, The Old North Bridge. The place where the shooting in the Revolutionary War began.
I was packing my first digital camera, a Canon Powershot S40, a 4 megapixel beauty that I loved and a shitty tripod I bought for $20.
This is the first image that I ever thought of conceptually in my head and then executed. I planned this shot. Scoped out the area looking for the shot.
I am fascinated by American history and I saw this sort of image in my head. I knew I wanted a beautiful shot of this amazing place. I got it.
People who saw this image would compliment me. They told me I would be a great photographer, that it ought to be in a calendar, that I should do more like it.
This picture was the one that set my future as a photographer.
