I wanted to ask you this questions for one reason. I have a good job, good enough to keep me going and save some money. I like photography and I see a lot of value in purchasing best glass (L) and a decent body (say 5D MKII). It cost a lot of money and I was thinking that I do not want to make a living out of photography, but I would be so happy if I could earn money to spend it on my gear - to justify that hobby.
I was also thinking that if I will not be able to sell any of my pictures, It will me that I am not any good in photography and I shall not invest in it.
Would appreciate your suggestions.
