Haha. Thank you for the site compliment. Tried adding my custom domain tonight, but obviously it takes 24 hours to update the DNS.

You're welcome, Dylan.
Cheers for now,
Simon

I am glad you have worked for your camera and lenses, you will appreciate yours so much more than a kid that gets things handed to them. Don't let this kid get to you, just ignore him (which I know he is probably a pain in the rear and that is easier said than done). Blow his pictures out of the water and show him that you can take a better photo than him using any camera. And when he is running his mouth, kill him with kindness and be the better person.

I am so glad you have parents that make you work for your belongings, you will a better person and citizen when you become an adult.

And as some have already posted, may I suggest "When I was 14, I....." <-- fill in your answer.

When I was 14 I got my first custom made surfboard (thanks dad :D ) ,,,,I had been into surfing since I was about 12 but only owned heaps of sh!te..

At 16 I borrowed my mates father's (a pro photographer) beat up Pentax Spotmatic and 200mm lens and started shooting surfing photos on K64.. At 18 I was first published in a surfing magazine.. The rest is history.

Well, gosh, when I was 14 -- actually things become a bit blurry...

When I was 12, in 1963, the Beatles showed up in the US -- I was in Junior High School and it was pretty exciting! My mom had introduced me to folk music, like Peter Paul and Mary, and then here came the Beatles!

And then on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas -- I remember walking into my shop class and then into the back room and listening to the live reports as our society changed...and then walking out onto the school grounds and seeing adults standing weeping...

So, then, yeah, life went on! Music, the Rock and Roll Revolution took hold. And hey, the early days of skateboarding, and I participated! A rough piece of wood with roller skate wheels, you could hammer down those hills, and in only weeks you could recover from your injuries!

And then, the teenage years and, yeah, there was truth to the saying that "if you remember the '60s then you weren't living them"...

Of course those of us who did live them and lived in the States remember another pretty grim reality of what we faced as we passed 18, but then...

What were we saying about being 14? It got kinda lost in the shuffle...

Those were "fun" times. November 22 is my Dad's birthday (he'll be 90 this year) and on his birthday in 1963 I was 16 and a senior in high school. He was in Iran then and we were in Columbus GA. He came home the next summer and we moved to Ft. Lewis WA. Since I was then only 17 and could not find a real job there, I joined the Army myself and ultimately went to Europe for a few years.

Oddly enough, I have never heard my Dad make mention of it and since he was out of the country in late 1963, I didn't put two and two together for several more years.

There are some things Dad doesn't talk about much such as being one of the first US Army officers to find the camp at Dachau, Germany, in 1945. Maybe this fits the same mold.

Hmm...I went to Dachau with my parents when I popped over to stay when Dad was in the RAF and posted near Dusseldorf. No, Dachau wasn't a pleasant place, even then, in 1988.
And the photos all over the camp make it pretty clear it was Hell on earth in 1945....
Again, a reason why we should "never forget", even if those who went to places such as Dachau would very much like to forget.

If you've seen The Band of Brothers, there toward the end when they find the camp, you can certainly understand why one would be reticent to talk about some things...
