I do photography because I love it. I discovered it 30-odd years ago and it was love at first sight. It is my religion, my sport, my hobby, my enjoyment, my obsession. A very important part of my life may be having to face a major adjustment. I don't freaking like it.

So, anyway, this is my sad way of saying "hello".
Lee, Welcome here from another who "burnt out", I think you have summed-up why many of us are here beautifully. Great to have you on-board
