Whatever it is, photography certainly has the potential to be a sport. I mean if golf and bowling can be considered as one, I dun see why photography can't where sometimes it's real sweat and physical stress we are exposed to!
P.S. Still can't figure why bowling and golf are sports... Maybe the more enlightened ones can explain to me? Of cos u need some strength to throw the ball or swing the stick but then... so does whenever I climb up and down the stairs to my home several times a day. :think: :dunno:
(Disclaimer: Dun mean it as an insult to the professions but a tongue in cheek comment. But still, personally, I dun see them as sports like others.)
