I've been taking pictures since I was seven years old, when my Dad taught my sister and I the basics of composition and manual exposure on an ancient Russian Zenit that weighed a ton! He also taught us how to develop and print our own black & white in his loft darkroom, though I'm not sure I’d remember how to do it now . . .
I've always owned a camera of some type since then, and made the switch to digital in 2001. I'm still constantly amazed what you can do with one, and rarely leave the house without mine!
