What's in a Name?

I'm in Canada visiting my wife's parents. Yesterday I took a walk along the river in town and met another photographer. His name is Jim as is my friend from Vermontville who is a photographer and my grandfather who was a photographer also. I still have some of grandpa's negatives including a few glass plate negatives. Is there some sort of connection between the name and an interest in photography? Probably not but it is an odd coincidence.

This most recent Jim and I had a long conversation about cameras and the changes that have occurred with the introduction of digital photography. It is always enjoyable to spend some time with people who like the same things you do.
