    this could get a little feisty but I will share mine

    I have a couple.
    1) I have two kids and never have time away from them so I have to work my photography in or wait until I have help. I have noticed other moms at places like the zoo, also hobbyist photographers totally ignoring their kids for the "shot". Once a woman was taking photos of a sea lion show and instead of watching her children, she pushed her son over to where we were, he got in front of my daughter and kept kicking her. She was in a stroller, only 1 year old. I had to ask his father and mother 3 times to please keep him from climbing in front of her and kicking her. It did serve to remind me that when I am in places for them, to forget the photography unless it is of them enjoying themselves.

    2) is petty. I just hate it when I have set up a shot and people with the dinky p*s cameras step in front and start firing off their little flashes ruining my photo or making me wait. Esp. when I know their photo isn't going to turn out

    I go out of my way to respect ANY person holding a camera up to take the shot, but it burns me when someone walks in front of me without caring even after they SEE ME.

    I thank them for the courtesy and try agian.

    I once "thanked" a miss prissy 3 times before her husband physically pulled her aside, apologized to me and told her to stop being a *****... lol.

    I sincerely thanked him for his courtesy and smiled, but made no more of it than that. I took my shot quickly and moved on.

    Oh, this is a prime one for me. I just love it when someone comes up to me, comments on my equipment, and then has the nerve to say "It must be nice to have that kind of money to throw around"....:confused:

    I've been into photography for almost 22 years now, and it has taken a long time to work my way up to what I have. I started off with a Minolta X370 and some crap lenses in high school (oops, just gave my age), and upgraded when possible.

    I now have a very good job, and can enjoy a few finer things, but I'm no Bill Gates by any means. Just want to smack some people....

    My pet peeve - places where I'm not allowed to take my camera or not allowed to defend myself.

    How about silly photo lab workers who apparently don't know what exactly they do, Battou??? I thought they were among your personal photography peeves! They sure belong to mine! When they eat their sandwiches and handle film all at the same time................................... :roll:
