This was sent to me years ago and was originally posted on my Lexar blog. I came across it recently and thought I would give it a second life here. Got any to add?


    4 GB of memory lasts most people a month but barely lasts you the afternoon.

    You know what aperture-priority means.  

    You delete more photos in a week than most people make all year.

    You need just one more lens.

    You’ve crawled on the ground to get a shot of something rusty.

    Your camera equipment is worth more than your car.

    No one else brings a camera to an event if they know you’re coming.

    Your family doesn’t recognize you without a camera covering your face.

    You have thousands of pictures and you’re not in any of them.

    You’ve been up before dawn or out in the freezing cold or even done something semi-dangerous… all for a photograph.

    Your friends ask you to shoot a family Christmas portrait for them as a favor.

    You wish your camera equipment cost less so that your insurance would cost less.

    You put your digital film wallet in your pants pocket in the morning even before your car keys.

    You have enough camera bags in your closet to pack up your entire house.

    You choose airlines based on carry on baggage allowance.

    PS7 is a software program and not a school you attended as a child.

    Your family cringes every time you say, “I’ll be right there, I just need to take a couple shots of this.”
