    you know what lens you are holding by feel and can change lenses one handed without putting anything down.

    ... you can get the camera out of your saddle bag, out of the case, take a photo, put it back in the case and put it back in the saddle bag while traveling down the highway at 60mph on your motorcycle.

    ... when packing for a trim you sacrifice clothes and food to make more room for all your camera gear.

    ... you work harder while on vacation in order to get great photos than you do at your regular job.

    ... the biggest decision before leaving the house is which camera bag and tripod to pick up; and then walk out in your slippers. (Of course that could be old age :lol

    LOL, We don't have much water around here -- but last month when shooting a downhill mountain bike race at Bootleg Canyon I slipped in the scree next to the course and my camera went up in the air along with my feet as I tumbled down the hill.. I thought nobody saw -- but one of my buddies was a couple hundred feet up the trail and reported to everyone that it was pretty funny seeing my feet and camera in the air at the same time.

    My knee still feels a little "funny" after a nasty spill I took last summer in the Tetons. I tripped on a barbed wire fence and went down hard in the rocky ditch. I limped away, but the camera survived.

    You might be a photographer if... A friend sees you out somewhere and you don't have a camera and he ask, " Are you sick or is something wrong because there is just something odd about you that I can't put my finger on."
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: You might be a photographer if...

    This weekend I was trying to get a photo of a waterfall when I slipped backwards on the wet rocks and came down with a thump and cut my head. blood dripping everywhere and all I could think of was keeping the dripping blood off both the camera and the tripod. Needless to say neither the camera or the tripod hit the floor during the fall.

    Ended up in A&E to get my head glued back together again. Ridiculed by my daughter and sister all the way there and all the way home.

    Re: You might be a photographer if...

    .....you bought a convertible just so the roof would not get in the way of looking for subjects (birds/clouds/trees, etc) to shoot overhead anymore.

    ...the neighbors all know you as the crazy guy with the camera shooting birds in his underwear...again.

    ...your memory cards have more storage space than the HD on your laptop.

    ...the first thing you install on your computer after a re-install of your operating system, is your photo editing software.

    ...when your kids falls off his bike you take 3 shots before running to help him =)
