    Having read the thread on professional stickers etc. I was wondering why you all take photos, so I thought I'd try one of these poll jobbies. I'll try and second-guess some answers, but please don't hesitate to speak up in the text if they are all rubbish and don't fit you.

    You left off the: "So I can buy a professional camera and put a sticker on it" option. :x

    I like to feel, artsy, but I can't draw a straight line.

    I do it because the beauty in a photograph helps me to escape from harsh reality. I just wish to create something beautiful.

    Mostly the first .... the process of photography (as I am learning to craft it so far) is a very fun hobby.

    Taking Photo's is like a box of chocolates, you never know what your gonna get :lol: ..... Time seems to prove that what may appear to be the perfect shot really isnt, but the one that looks horrible on the LCD screen is really the price Winner!!

    Sorry for the blur - a little tired from working all night long....
