I decided a while go that I wouldn't want to become a pro, (regardless of the fact that I don't have the ability to do so). I've come to the conclusion that no matter how much one enjoys their craft - whatever it is - it becomes a Job. A Job is something you feel you have to do to bring home the bacon and keep a roof over you & your family, whether you want to or not. I'd much rather keep snapping away as an amateur, looking forward to the day when I can kick the kids out, sell the house and spend whatever time I've got left doing what *I* want to do, mainly photography and travelling; with the odd bit of beer drinking thrown in.

I'm aware that there are some lucky people who always enjoy their work, some of them are even pro photographers, but sadly for most us it's now just a Job.
