I'm a network engineer. I surf the Internet at home (mostly forums of my hobby interests) extensive, keep in touch via email, then go to work and sit in front of a computer for work email and a terminal program configuring devices to keep Internet traffic flowing. It's nice to get off the damned thing and get my hands wet and feel like I'm actually crafting something.

Plus I started in photography when that's the way it was done, never got over the excitement of watching a print come up in the developer tray, and I enjoy it.

That last is key. Because I enjoy doing it this way.
