you know you're a photographer if......

1 GB of memory lasts most people a month but barely lasts you the afternoon.
You know what aperture-priority means.
You delete more photos in a week than most people make all year.
You need just one more lens.
You've crawled on the ground to get a shot of something rusty.
Your camera equipment is worth more than your car.
No one else brings a camera to an event if they know you're coming.
Your family doesn't recognize you without a camera covering your face.
You have thousands of pictures and you're not in any of them.
You've been up before dawn or out in the freezing cold or even done something semi-dangerous… all for a photograph.
Your friends ask you to shoot a family Christmas portrait for them as a favor.
You wish your camera equipment cost less so that your insurance would cost less.
You put your memory card wallet in your pants pocket in the morning even before your car keys.
You have enough camera bags in your closet to pack up your entire house.
You choose airlines based on carry on baggage allowance.
PS7 is a software program and not a school you attended as a child.
Your family cringes every time you say, "I'll be right there, I just need to take a couple shots of this."

This is sooo right in some ways and I found that on a "myspace"page of a friend - Conny I hope you don't mind I have "stolen" it ....

This cameras above my hubby found years ago - there are several more. When we lived in your former flat we had a big big letter box on the ground floor and there was an "unwritten law" who allowed everyone who lived in this house they can leave some things they never need on the letter box. Sometimes there were candle holdes, once there was an alarm clock - but the "rule" was - all these things we put there are not allowed to stay there more than 24 hous - if the are not taken by others who live in the house and could need it it must be removed. And it really worked. 
So once I was sick and laid in my bed with horrible stomach pain hubby went to get me some pills and when he came back he brought 7 "old" cameras which were found on the letter box - you sure can imagine that all my stomach pain was gone when I checked all these lovely ones..... I never got to know who left them there - but thanks a lot you "unknown"....
