    Other hobbies

    All these "post your" threads made me think about sharing other hobbies. Especially Ken's post, because almost everyone here is creative in so many ways. Anyway, my others are as follows:

    Floral Design
    Pool
    Music (violin, percussion)

    Mountain biking..

    Like some others here, I use my other hobby to get myself around the world and create situations for photos!

    Family, Biking, Windsurfing, Music

    Family not shown. I took the bike shot and it was published in Dirt Rag (user's submission section). That's me on the board and on the kit.
    Cheers,

    Re: Other hobbies

    I have a couple other hobbies, the photo below illustrate my collection of obsolete computers. They are a Wang Dumb Terminal (Circa 1977), a Tandy TRS-80 Model 100 (Circa 1983), a Tandy Colour Compuer 3 (Circa 1986), and a Apple //c (Circa 1984). I have a much larger collection which includes Consols, and Calculators as well.

    I've also picked up a new hobby, infultration, going into abandoned placed, exploring ubran structures ect, just for the fun of it. I just got back from doing one. I also write short fiction

    Re: Other hobbies

    Cool shot, Lidarman - coming up with something different for a dog shot can be difficult. Here's mine:
    1. My Malamute and Samoyed taking me for a walk.
    2. Sea kayaking in the Apostle Islands on Lake Superior. Got to make my permit reservation for next month today. Woo hoo!
    3. A friend took this slow-sync flash shot of me at a gig last fall.

    Re: Other hobbies

    Besides my creative side and my family as mentioned in my other post, I am also an Amateur Radio Operator (call sign KC9EXE). I also enjoy tinkering with computers and various electronic things and like Axle, used to have a store room full of "ancient" computers which recently had to be gotten rid of. :-(
    I am also a life member in 2 Veterans Orginizations and when I have the time...try to be active in them, but that has been very limited since the grandkids started coming along.

    Re: Other hobbies

    Never Almo, I just said other hobbies, a camera must always be within reach though. Spiders kinda fall into a "hobby" category for me too. The hobby is staying far from them.

    Those computers make me feel so old, lol. Well, we have 2 percussionists, a bassist and guitarist. So, next meet we can have a jam session. What ya think guys?

    Re: Other hobbies

    Here's some from the infultration adventure. Unfortunatly with the batteries almost dying on the camera a lot of the images got corrupted, I only got four out of fifteen images...stupid camera. Also the front lens element got cracked.

    Oh well, here they are. And yes there was a sign on the proporty that read "Private Property, No Tresspassing"

    Re: Other hobbies

    I like to play video games and build computer cases. This is formerly a compaq server I spend the entire summer on last year converting to a PC and giving an automotive quality paint job:









    I've done quite a few other pc mods and I also have my macintrash sitting here beside me. It's an old G4 I converted for use as a trashcan.

    I guess I'm not very creative. My other hobbies include motorcycling, running, biking, road races, triathlons, target shooting, scuba diving and astronomy. Too many hobbies, not enough time (or money). ;-)

    Here are a few shots of a few of my hobbies.

    First shot is of my buddy Brian and our Celestron C-8's. Took this one last year during the Venus Transit of the Sun.

    Second shot is of me and my kids (and one of their friends) after the Beaufort Road Race.

    Third shot of of me during a triathlon in North Dakota. The water temp was 56 degrees!

    Final shot is my Winchester Model 70 Heavy Barrel.

    Well, at least you stay busy. Not enough people stay busy as the group here seems to. I have started hiking and taking nature walks since getting into photography, and my health has greatly improved. We sure have a vast amount of diverse interests here.

    BTW, i need some manly hobby like the rest of you. Floral design, lmao! I hesitate on telling people that, but it helps pay the bills!

    Thanks, and it's true! ;) I took that with my Coolpix and a fisheye, less than a foot from their back legs.

    It is a neat thread. I figured it would die and everyone would just be like "what a dork".

    OK, I can't decide what exactly my "hobbies" are, but I guess here are a few.

    theatre
    travel ]¬
    amateur meteorology w/focus on storms ]----(oh look, I have a photo combining the two!)
    art
    music (actually I sing, don't play piano much anymore)


    I don't have any pictures of my most favorite hobby though: sitting on my computer!

    For you Nat, absolutely!

    :-D

    Another from the Beaufort Road Race. My kids are wearing the green shirts.

    And a couple more from the Triathlon Days in North Dakota.

    The first one is of me and a couple of my friends waiting for the race to start. It was chilly.

    The second one is of my buddy Chuck and myself post-race. It had warmed up considerably - and so had we!

    Last one is another post race shot of all the Air Force boys that came from Minot to participate.
