10 more ways to tell if you’re a photographer

Expanding on the original post, here are 10 more ways to tell if you’re a photographer:

  • One of your primary criteria when buying a new cell phone is how good the camera is.
  • You love the smell of fixer in the morning.
  • You’ve made more than 50 shots of a single subject.
  • When you can’t find a model, you make self portraits.
  • You’ve endured a little loneliness for the sake of a photograph.
  • There’s a photo that inspires you to try and make one just as moving.
  • Tourists ask you to take their picture.
  • You were insufferable for the two weeks it took to get your camera back from repair.
  • You seem to find great photo opportunities whenever you leave your camera at home.
  • The garbage needs taking out, the house is a mess, and your car is filthy… but the glass on your favorite lens doesn’t have a speck of dust on it.
