Subject: Photographic Footsteps
I never really realized, but I've been following quite closely in my father's footsteps for a while now.  He recently brought in a bunch of old photos, and in the stack was this Melbourne Speedway Magazine Programme, detailing the race highlights for the 10th Night Speedway Meeting, December 5th 1970:

Dad took that shot.  Inside the 8 page programme he pointed out something else of interest:

That's his ad for photographic services.  Notice the focus on action photography.  Check out my current business card:

Wow.  Like father like son, indeed.

I actually laughed out loud. Other than the comical appeal of the blatancy, it's kind of amazing. Do you think your father had influenced you much in this direction?

Not really, no.  When he was still taking photos I was too young to notice or care.  I was aware he used to take photos, I was aware he had his own darkroom before he got married, but I didn't know what he took pics of, when or where. 

So it was quite a surprise to find this out today.

AND, though I knew this before it's still quite a shock, he was a Nikon shooter when we lived in Canada.  Pentax before that, but it's interesting we both ended up shooting Nikon as a result completely independent evaluation processes.
