Quote:we are all into photography on epz well that's why we use the site i guess

There are photographers......................and people with cameras!

I used to play Tennis at county and national league standard, coached the kids and played a little golf to get away from Tennis (4 x a week) but following a golf accident causing total blindness in my left eye, it forced me to give up both.

I now have a great interest in Sharks and shark behaviour plus looking after our two Burmese cats and socialising with friends and a drop of real ale.

Having said that, 90% of my spare time is taken up with photography related goings on.

Walking/Climbing mountains, running up and down mountains and mountain biking in mountains.

This year I've returned to playing cricket after a 25 year absence, don't try that at home folks... its painful in so many ways unimaginable but I'm enjoying it as my 13yr old son is showing great promise in the game.

Photography doesn't actually take up much of my time these days as I can go weeks or months without using the camera if circumstances for producing good results don't materialise.

Although the book project is taking up a bit of non-photography time on the computer.

My 3 year old grandson is crazy about sharks, he knows all the different types...blinds me with his knowledge.
I buy him shark books and he's engrossed while I read them to him.

Appreciate if you can point me in the direction of any interesting info.

Hi Mike. It's a little advanced for a three year old (Although he sounds very switched on) but the best info I have read comes from the 'US Navy Shark attack files'.
These books give details of attacks and behaviour. i.e. Water temperature, location, time of day, type of shark, what the victim was wearing, injuries suffered etc. etc.
All sounds a bit gruesome but when the patterns start to take place, I find it facinating.
Other than that, I have the usual, everyday books on shark behaviour and shark types. Search Amazon and you'll find loads.
Sorry I can't be on further help. Wink

cheers for that...you're right it does seem a little too gruesome and advanced for him.
...he's told me that he can't swim with them at The Deep in Hull 'till he's 9...I've told him I'll pay

....can't wait...hope I'm still here to see it Smile

thanks again....Mike

Sounds like all these hobbies could also be groups on ephotozine, or even keywords for photo uploads.

I'm a bedroom dj and dance music producer, now mostly dubstep, but also melodic trance, a bit like Chicanes music, chilled but energetic. If i get an hour or two to myself i will most likely set up my decks and spin some reggae, juggling riddims and bouncing between versions, though i no longer buy vinyl, i also have my VDJ linked up so i can mix in mp3's as well, which really makes mixing 100% easier, but it is still fun to do.

Can also play various instruments, guitar, piano, accordion, violin (well, thats debatable lol) Also read a lot, love running, love cycling, anything that makes me out of breath. And driving, weird i know, but i love long drives, though long drives to Luton fill me with dread, dont ask. I also love painting and drawing, and teaching my niece how to paint, thats magical, though she is a little know it all now obviously.

I still enjoy watching wildlife, though i never spoil it by getting the camera out anymore, really cant be bothered, for me it distracts from the moment, but i make an effort to get to the coastal regions of norfolk at least once a month to get my birdy fix. And no, its not sea birds i enjoy watching, though it can be spectacular, im into raptors, notably red kites, which are now all over this part of the uk, very god news indeed. Thats about it i think Smile

Oooh, its a big bedroom..... I cant tell lol i have played out in a few clubs, but mostly those which my brother promotes, though i have no intention of doing it too often, will take the fun element away from it i think, but i have been djing since 1990 on and off, from 120bpm breaks to 240bpm gabber, i prefer the more sedate pace of 90 to 130bpm nowadays because im getting old Smile
