    Same. I also got interested around 14. That was during the late 80s, so things have already changed... and is still changing....

    Also started with a compact when I was 15, upgraded to an SLR (Minolta x300si) when I was in my early 20s, stopped for a few years then got an EOS500N until it died, then got an EOS88 early last year and finally went digital in Sept 2005.

    Started 16 yrs ago but only got serious last year, so still quite newbie.

    A dream will comes true when all those who had taken up this
    fantastic idea of capturing images for more than 15 years to come
    and sit by the wayside uptown to sip coffee watching the setting
    sun recounting our experiences. Anyone?

    lets see...

    normally i take a pic @ 1/125sec = 0.48sec

    on average i take = 100 pics every fortnite

    i join roughly 2 shoots a mth = 200 pics

    actual time i spent taking pics per mth = 96sec

    been shooting since dec 02 = 24 mths (not including 06)

    total time i've been into photography = 2304 sec ~ 38.4 mins

    Hey, those who have been in photography longer doesn't mean that they are better. Everyone is still learning. My dad was my shifu, taught me darkroom back then, now I'm trying to teach him some digital image manipulation. 10 years back he envisage that photos should be edited on PCs and not spending so much time groping in the dark, (no red light because we did colour). Now it has come true..
