Don't you hate it when... you're driving, you see the most gorgeous sunset, you have everything you need in the car ready to go, but... you have an appointment you can't miss so you can't stop. You have no choice but to look at it and let it go. :(

...or when there is absolutely no place to stop on the side of a highway, when you see a spectacular scene or sunset

...of when there are unavoidable power lines and phone lines on poles, intruding into a spactacular landscape.

Don't you hate it when you are sitting having a coffee in an outdoor cafe when a beautiful girl walks by and your camera is stuck in your bag?? You miss the shot!!

Or worse yet, you are driving on a highway that should have a special lane for photographers to pull over and shoot, because of the plethora of great scenes, but they have totally neglected that in the design of the highway -- how lame is that:)!?

How do you shoot 2500 shots a day? what is the percentage of keepers.

Burst mode + action = a lot of shots.

I hate it when I put my eye to the view finder and 20 people feel the need to walk in front of me.

When I drive 2 hours to a spot to view a sunset and when I get 10 minutes away, it starts to rain.

well, in reality the fundamentals are all the same. It's just a difference in how one adjusts the important 3 (iso, aperture, shutter speed) and maybe focus. So if you understand how exposure works, you should be able to pick up just about any camera and get good results quickly...

After 30 years, I completely understand the technical aspects of photography, that isn't the issue. I could discuss the specs on just about any Canon body, and the controls are quite similar and could figure out where things are on most different Canon models. But don't hand me your Sony or Olympus and assume that since I'm a pro, I should know where the buttons are for YOUR white balance, or YOUR exposure compensation, how to force YOUR flash. That's what I meant by that. ; )

What gets me is the one guy who decides he wants to re-earn his high school title of "Class Clown" right in the middle of your sunset shot at the beach...always to the feigned amusement of whatever girl happens to be with him at the time.

A good friend will help you move.
A true friend will help you move a body.
An old friend more than likely will pass on either because of a bad back.

Don't you hate it when ... you realize you've been spending more time reading POTN than shooting.

Don't you hate it when some yahoo suggests that life is a set of either or situations? For example, you can read the net, or you can take pictures. There are other variables involved here! :)

One of a billion things that was mildly amusing the first time, then never again... yet people insist on still doing it.
