It's funny - I was always geared towards photography. Or at least from a very early age. I like to think of the start being when I got a DSLR as a teenager, but really, I was doing all sorts of nonsense with cameras at 7 years old too. I don't know if I chose it, or it chose me, but there was an organic synergy between me and the little boxes that transmitted images.

Your comments about video make me think about my ideas about going into filmmaking and remind me that I definitely should not have. I'm too meticulous with stills, I cannot imagine how obnoxious and vexing I'd become if the stills could move...
