Every photographer has a favorite camera.  Whether it is their first or the newest one, fresh out of the box, one camera has special place on the shelf, in the camera bag, or in the heart.  Mine is my first Nikon camera – the F2.  I’m fuzzy on exactly how I came to possess it, but I do know it was well used before I owned it as it had been used by a local newspaper photographer.  It felt right in my hand and it was a joy to carry.  Alas, I don’t shoot film any more so instead of on my tripod or in my bag,  this little baby rests in a prominent place on a shelf in my office.   But it is there, ready and willing.  Someday, I’ll grab some film, wipe off the dust, and take it for a spin.
