...you're willing to trespass for a good shot.

When you start compulsively creating wish lists on the websites of B&H and Amazon...

When you're in the process of ordering your latest toys and the next set of toys start fighting for space in the financial queue ("Hey, I see you're about to buy that 70-200 f2.8 IS with your income tax check! Didn't you just make a ton of overtime recently? Wouldn't you really like to have the Bigma too?" <Dr.Smith>"Oh, noooooooooooo!"</Dr.Smith>;)...

This actually happened!

I went for my eye exam and the doctor said I was starting to develop cataracts.

I went home and cleaned my sensor!

You know your photography crazy when...

you're unable to resume a normal life and refrain from doing anything discussed in this thread. Sheesh! C'mon guys... I mean, I enjoy looking at the pictures hung up no my wall as a result of this hobby, but they are nothing more than pictures. Wouldn't it be a little insane if you went as far to say "You know your photography crazy when... you look past your family members and obsessively stare at the walls all day at the results of your photographic endeavors [yes, pictures, the singular objective behind all of this hardware/software]".

... just a little perspective.. not trying to criticize anybody or anything... :)

...you make it to page 33 of this thread before finally clicking last>> to find out how much longer it's going to take.

...your constant reading material is the lens catalog, and you've memorised and constantly revisit the minimum focal distances, maximum magnifications and weights - with and without telephoto and extension tubes - for the next half-dozen lenses you're eyeing, and the ones you already own that you'd be upgrading from.

...in your Canon lens catalog, you've consolidated specifications from Sigma and Tokina in tiny handwriting alongside the similar Canon models.

...you consider it outrageous that a lady would waste enough money for a hand made Italian leather designer handbag, but you'll happily pay the better part for a Lowerpro nylon & polyester Chinese backpack.

...you fall asleep wondering what you can add to this thread.

...the first thing you do on any new computer you use is browse to your online gallery and check how the monitor renders your colours and levels.

...you're regularly going to work on 3 hours sleep because you haunt Critique Corner.

...you actually expect people with Nikons to hate you on sight.

...you think your first confessional in twenty years would have to start "I did covet my neighbour's Nikon, but that was before the 5DII...".

(actually - no bigot myself - I do use some Nikon gear where Canon just can't compete: so I have one piece of luggage and a camera vest, and I've been eyeing their extra-wide strap)

...your most romantic idea for an evening with your other half is strolling along the riverbank with your cameras (and when they're in bed, you're post-processing).

...you stumble (gotta maintain momentum here) across a "naughty" picture online, and all you can think is "I could have done much better with my 5D".

...you kept reading this thread even after it became about toilet drainage.

...you suddenly notice you've bumped your camera onto an automatic mode, and you can't stop your hand twitching - like it's touched a hot stove - straight to the knob to hide the shameful implications, while looking up and around to make sure nobody's noticed, calculating how long ago it could have happened.

...someone - seeing you out and kitted up - asks you to take a picture with their P&S, and you're literally dumbfounded for ten seconds when you find no viewfinder to look through. (Was the first time after the Awakening, I'm better now...).

...it takes mental effort to transition from annoyance at the unpredictable walking of the little brat who almost headbutted your dangling 70-200 f/2.8 IS (thankfully the ever-cradling hand moved it swiftly to safety) to some semblance of caring and humanity.

...you get to the last page of this thread, and you're disappointed it's ended.

...your camera equipment - which may never snag a picture that will make any significant difference to anyone else in the world - costs more than 250,000 doses of polio vacine, or - if MMV works as advertised - cure for 20,000+ cases of malaria.

Oh dear. Oh dear :-(.

Re JBaz and post #588 - I do hope he wasn't out there with just that. Got to be a backpack nearby....

When you open a credit card and have a paperless statement e-mailed to you so your wife wouldn't see your purchases. (i.e.- She'd assume my ShootSac was maybe $40-$60 max, but would loose it if she knew it was $175 for a bag that's not even a "bag".)

Rarely does the girlfirend ask why I have it, it more of, on those rare occasions, "Where's you're camera?"
It still makes me laugh when people ask why I take my camera everywhere. :lol:

I wouldn't swear to it, but I'm pretty sure I've done this, and, to a point would again...
