When Does Passion Become Obsession?

 

I have always enjoyed photography. I remember as a 14 year old traveling to Washington D.C. for the first time and having to borrow money to buy film. Then having to work all summer to get the money to develop the 20 rolls of film I had taken. A couple of years later as I graduated High-School, one of the gifts I was given was a Polaroid so I could save the money on developing. This passion was set aside for a while as I was making my way into the business world. But then during a vacation trip with my wife, I happened to purchase a new Canon Rebel SLR and the passion was born again. Fast forward to the introduction of Digital SLRs and the passion started to transition into obsession. I love getting out into Gods creation and viewing his handy work and attempting in some small way to capture it. As I have matured as a photographer (and a person), my wife started to tell me that my photographs should be available for purchase. I didn't believe her at first, but I opened an ETSY shop to start selling my prints and have been very pleased to share my art with others around the world.
