Amen. I started photography because I can't play music, or draw or paint. But I still wanted to express myself creatively. I thought photography would be an easy way to do that; all you have to do is find stuff, point the camera at it, and push a button. Nothing could have prepared me for the amount of time and energy demanded to become halfway proficient at this. I can't turn back now though....
