Well at least this thread is entertaining!
I don't hide my stuff, but I don't flaunt it either. I revealed my newest d!git@l P&S after some film work received $175 worth of awards and one also sold from a show -- a little bit of sugar makes the medicine go down, etc., etc. But I have an evil spreadsheet that definitely shows my photographic finances are not net positive! But hey, it's cheaper than ocean sailboat racing!
