    Actually, my hobbies are the key to the door which leads outside the asylum.

    I like this, and completely understand where you're coming from ...

    It's a meditative engagement feeding and occupying all sorts of neuroses and OCD's, and is probably as good as any kind of psycho-pharmaca....

    Exactly... For me it's just a way to shut out the insanity of every day life, exhale, and find a place where I'm bothered by nothing. There is only the picture, and trying to do it justice. That, to me, is soul satisfying.

    Next to fooling around with the wife, photography is a great way to unwind, relax, cut loose, get off...

    It was also a welcomed distraction from my divorce years ago, and it got me through it.
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.

    Yep. 100% yes.

    Since my work life is fast paced and digital, film photography is a very nice and welcome change of pace. Doesn't matter if I'm shooting, developing, or printing. I find all aspects of my photography habit very relaxing.
