I took some time to scan the first picture I ever made. It all starts in December 1984. This is a picture of my late mother from that time.
I was around 10, and, of course, made pictures of all the things I was proud of. Like my BMX bike, or my first plant. I do not remember the camera I used, but luckily most pictures at least had the date noted on their backside when they were developed.
In case you consider scanning your old pictures, too, I can suggest to you the combination of a Canon CanoScan 9000F Mark II together with the SilverFast Software. That is not very expensive together, and you can also scan negatives with it.
