When you do a macro photography, you see people around you looking at you like you're retarded with lenses at point blank. I bet they are thinking "Why is he using telephoto wrong?" (fully extended with extension tubes!)

Just now watched CSI Miami (rerun), where criminologist had an interview with guy, there is a camera with ring flash, on top of shiny black table. the camera man panned to the right showing off the camera, that shouldn't be there anyway. It seems like I can read cameraman's mind about that fancy camera.

You know your a photographer when you bring flowers home to your wife so you can spritz them with water and practice some macro shots.

The reason you tear up when you see a beautiful sunset is because you don't have your camera with you.
