It is kind of sad, really.

I brought my camera to buy a bag at Currys and the guy behind the counter said he had a camera like mine, but he never used it. I can't even remember the make he said, but it was a DSLR. He took it to some races in the Isle of Man, and just got lots of blurry shots, and didn't use the camera again.

I asked him did he ever try taking a course, or did he not want to read about it? Nope.

The camera is now just collecting dust, and he's regretting the purchase, and he's only practiced and played very little because he think's either he's got no talent or the camera stinks.

Very sobering thought. Thank you.
