I came across an old NEX-5 video that may explain my story behind my nickname

(No Bengals were harmed during the making of this video)

First camera I ever used. I found it in the linen closet. A train wrecked at one of the local crossings and I begged my mom to get me some film. I still remember how excited I was when the prints came back. This was somewhere around 1964 or 65.

Cool to hear how you got your nickname, Indigo is a nice word indeed! As for mine, it's a bit simpler. My nickname SPcze actually comes from the initials of my first and last name, and I added a twist to it to make it sound unique.

I remember one time when I was out camping with friends, we saw this breathtaking sunset over the mountains, and the colors were just incredible.

I was chatting with a Chinese person on social media once. And he told me about the facade of his house, where the word 'Facade' was mistakenly written. I liked it, so I use it for my nicknames.
