Yes, I think you are spot on Lance, work is the bit that is missing.

Thing is many people do not realize that work can be fun and very satisfying, and after all fun and satisfaction are what photography is all about.

I simply loved practicing when I played golf. Many said practicing was boring, & they only played for fun, yet got really angry & frustrated when they played badly, yet still stubornly refused to do anything about it. I practiced very hard with physical limitations, & achieved a decent handicap. I have tried to adopt the same attitude to photography. I believe we only get out of it what we are prepaired to put in to it.

I was the same when I played golf.

You may remember the anecdote about Gary Player playing in a tournament where he sunk a shot out of the bunker and a spectator was alleged to have snorted, "Gees, you're lucky", to which Gary Player responded, "Yeah, the more I practice, the luckier I get".

hey Lance. Yes, I remember that quote. The point about practice is to practice the right things. I paid for lessons with a guy I knew & trusted. Some of the guys would seek out free advice from blokes that couldn't break 100. Their choice. I was always happy to play well shoot a decent score, & if I finished 20th in a medal it was irrelevant to my enjoyment of the round. I play, I learn, I move on & learn some more [hopefully]

I'll be in the UK next month, possibly up your way going to the Lakes district and then to Scotland. Any suggestions of beautiful scenery, lovely UK villages, churches, cathedrals and castle etc?
