The problem and sad fact is when a person eventually has all the best and most expensive equipment that their heart desires, and their work is still crap, they have nowhere to go, and nothing to blame.
I will never be a great photographer. Oh sure I'm continuing to learn to be exposure and processing savvy, but I don't have an artists eye.

Still, I like to collect old cameras, I like to take photos, I like processing my own film. Besides, the one who dies with the most camera equipment wins!
