Costa Rican Sunset

For throwback Thursday, let’s go back to the beginning. I purchased my first digital camera nearly 23 years ago. It was the 4.0 Megapixel(!) Olympus E-10. It featured a fixed 4x zoom lens. Instead of interchangeable lenses, it sold 0.8x and 3x converters that attached to the front of the lens. The idea was that if you never exposed the sensor, it would never get dusty. I guess that worked, but the autofocus was terrible. I had so many blurry pictures. In retrospect, I should have pretended it was a manual-focus camera.

This photograph was taken on December 1, 2001 in Jaco Beach, Costa Rica. Exactly five years before my son was born. (Olympus E-10, 1/100 sec at f/3.6, 14mm)
