Since I have been hooked on brewing, my other hobbies miss me
So anyone else loose focus on other hobbies since brewing?

I have brewed on and off with partial mash for about 3 years, but last fall I went all grain and was hooked beyond belief.

Well the side effect is that my other hobbies were put on the back burner, mostly photography. Anyways, I need to get out there now that it is spring and there is some pretty good landscapes this time of year before they get toasted by the heat.

Here are some samples from stuff last year.

Sleeping under stars in Big Sur


Discovery Park in Seattle


After sunset in Cayucos, CA


A nice Sunrise at Lake Tahoe

you have SKILL. those are beautiful.

i think my other hobbies (video games and riding my hog) still get a good chunk of my focus

It's easy for me, brewing created my two major hobbies. Brewing and Drinking.

I enjoy the outdoors but don't spend enough time there.

BTW: Your pictures rock. Some of us take an occasional good picture out of luck, yours takes skill.

Yes, beer does help most certainly, but a tripod, cable release and a film camera really help for loooooooong star trails. That one was about 8 hours long at 17mm wide on the lense.

Thanks! Yeah, that is kinda what I have thought for the past few months. I had someone ask me the other day, "so this is a hobby for you now" I was like uhh duh.. I have been talking your ear off about brewing beer for the last 15 minutes"

I tend to go in cycles between home brewing, firearm projects and Jeeping. I get burnt out or finish a major project and move on to something new. Lately it's been my Jeep project consuming what little hobby time I have. Can't wait to get it rolling before Summer.

Great stuff. I somehow always manage to pick the most expensive hobbies, but yes, my other hobbies (which I couldn't do much with due to lack of money) have been put on hold. Performance computer, High Quality Audio, Performance car, and now brewing. I still need wider wheels and tires, suspension, and at least a cam, heads would be nice too, for my LS1 Z28.
