I love bird/wildlife watching, walking & geocaching, mothing, nosing around historic buildings and sites (well any place that's steeped in history or mythology really). I'm thoroughly enjoying dabbling in genealogy at the moment too....but it's becoming a bit of an obsession and takes up so much time.

My other major hobby is video games, I probably play them a bit too much. I've also started learning to cook recently and I'm gonna try and teach myself guitar.

Quote:obsessive worrier. Does that count as a hobby?

Depends on how much you enjoy it and whether you get paid. LOL

Studying anything technical. My main photography is geared towards this activity, providing pictures to illustrate my journal for each study project. I have each journal bound.

Current project: the Medieval House from Footscray. All photographs taken and embodied, must concentrate on the text!

Other interests:
Piano and keyboard playing

Being useless. (Says my wife!) Smile

First World War history is my other obession (a couple of links on my PF if you are interested), through these sites I've contributed to various other forms of First World War media including a couple of TV productions and I've just discovered that a lot of my stuff as now been published in a book.

Illness has curtailed most of my interests and pastimes: but played and coached Rugby, played Golf, long distance running, Chess, computers, politics, reading, poetry, make a horrible noise on a guitar, cooking, (used to cook in a vegetarian restaurant in Brighton), sitting on a cliff miles from people, and love my garden.

Videography: mainly event stuff.

Music: listening, and playing piano (badly!)

Cars: Interested since about age 4. I even run an enthusiasts forum on the web.

Residents association: Chairman for several years. Not sure whether this is an interest - or maybe a curse placed upon me! Sad

Oh and I do occasionally do some work too! Wink

I like:
1. playing the guitar and writing instrumental compositions. Then I record them along with my guitar and Midi backings via 'recording studio' software on to CD.
2. Making Videos - steam trains and video essays i.e. music cut to pictures of landscapes, townscapes etc.
3. to listen to Jazz, Blues and Classical music.
4. Last, but not least, reading and talking about philosophy both on my Website and on sites like E-photozine.
5. Sending complaints to the BBC and others criticising the media for bias and distortions of the truth.
6. Following articles and programmes investigating the paranormal but so far I have failed to come to any firm conclusions.

Plants and dogs. In a myriad of different ways and forms.

Lots of other interests but they are my real hobbies. But I think anyone might've guessed that by looking at my pf (as with a number of other people on here!)
