Not a link per se.

How do you know that you really like doing SP?

  • Buying 5 FF bodies and maybe 20 FF lenses in 5 Years?
  • Shooting several times a week and PPing every day?
  • Printing your shots?
  • Taking multiple courses in related and unrelated subjects?
  • Buying books, including the odd out of print one?
  • Spending too much time viewing and discussing SP online?
  • Going to gallery and museum shows to see more SP.
  • Shooting in snow and wind and rain to get special effects?
  • Buying special clothing to shoot in these circumstances?
  • Avoiding vacations to warm, sunny climes with beautiful beaches?

Well, that's a start.

Buy you really know that love SP when you go out with a lingering virus, and your shooting eye dry and stinging, and each time you bring the camera to your eye, all you see is a blur and a couple of lines and some highlights, and you come home and you're knocked out for several days, and you still count it a day well spent.   That's when you know your love street photography, with a love that goes beyond normal human endurance and reason.
