Hi M. Photo,

What does any of that have to do with wither one is a photographer or not?
People can use mass market cameras, and still be photographers, consuming
far more film than you or I do with pictures of their children, pets,
grandma drooling etc.

I have had many sabbaticals, and enjoyed them all, and I never worked or
will ever work "retail".  But, again, what does that have to do with whether
one is a photographer or not?  I guess we're on different channels here ;-)
