Photography had never been anything I thought I would be good at. I used to cut people’s heads off in the frame and with film, I never knew it until the photos came back. Another time I borrowed a 35mm for my first solo trip to Great Britain. I found myself alone on the train with the Swedish Soccer team on their way to the World Cup match. They were curious about a young woman traveling alone and a few of them struck up a conversation. When we got to the stop we all got off and some wanted a group photo. I gave one of them my camera to get a photo and then we went on our way. Later, after taking many other photos I wondered how many I had left. Turns out the film was not loaded correctly and I ended up with nothing. True story.
