Just for Fun: You Might Be a Photographer If....

by Marsha January. 17, 2010 5627 views

One more….

You might be a photographer if you can't go online for anything without checking PB…. :))) Oh, yes, I'm guilty!

If you've got a good one, post it below!

You might be a photographer if….

…nobody wants to take a walk with you because you are always so far behind.

…someone asks you “How’s the weather at your place?” and your answer is “ISO 800."

For the gals….You fall in love with the most gorgeous platinum and diamond ring in the jeweler‘s window, then look at the price and think, “Eh, I'd rather have a 5D.”

For the guys…..Your wife or girlfriend asks you “How do I look?” and you say “Nice post-processing” AND it is meant as a compliment.

….your kids or grandkids want to leave the zoo before you’re ready.

…or…..you'll do almost anything to get those shots, including kissing a wolf!

…you have more memory on cards than you do in your brain.

…you suffer from “separation anxiety” when you don’t have your camera with you.

…the bumper sticker on your car reads, “I brake for EVERYTHING.”

…you tell your spouse to “go on back to the car, I’ll only be a few more minutes.”
Then this sight greets you an hour later when you DO arrive back at the car ;))

(I got most of these ideas from the internet….but this one's mine!)

LOL, I recognize myself in so much of this :-)
Where can I get that bumper-stick?
It is so true for me, both because I photograph and because I love animals and would not like to hit a single squirrel or bird!

Lotofoto 11 years, 3 months ago

I love this! Thank you for the laugh. It is all so very true!
I have a few...
When your phone rings and many-a-time it's a friend/neighbor/relative telling you that there is something you need to photograph so quick! bring your camera!
Or... when a large # of your long-sleeved shirts have stained elbows from always lying on the ground trying to get the right angle.
Or...When your kids don't take a bite of their dessert yet because they know Mom will probably want to take a picture first!

This is completely hilarious and I noticed that I have been already infected with this virus... since a year ago, before that, I was absolutely healthy :))
To avoid the seperation anxiety I always carry a small cybershot in my bag or pocket, otherwise I feel nude!

Great and very smart set!!

I plead guilty to all of these and would add this one: ...when you have to think long and hard between your child's university education and a 400 f/2.8 lens.

Nice set - thank you for making me laugh.

I like this idea of turning the lens on the photographer.
Yes, like you Marsha, I am always having "just a quick look at PB" whenever I go past my laptop.
