Hobbies & Interests (outside of football and sports)

I seemed to have gained a huge interest in pencil sketching and photos. Nothing amazing, but find the sketching quite relaxing and a great way to unwind. With the photography, it is only whipping out the mobile phone when out on my bike, taking the kids to school, or out delivering cheesecakes.

I am not for one moment suggesting I am that good at it, but I do seem to have an eye for depth in colours and shadings. All very basic stuff, but really enjoying it. Toying with the idea of doing some courses, but then it becomes more serious. At the moment I just have a few art magazines from the newsagents, just to get ideas.

Do any of you guys have any hobbies or interests outside of sports, I am sure you do, as you seem an “interesting” rabble.

I’m not an artist, but have been working as cameraman for 15 years, and spend a load of time photographing stuff :astonished:

I always look to that bastian of civilization that is the BBC to help with such things… their ‘Get Inspired’ theme has now turned a timely eye to …Darts. Surely the only thing they need to say is go to the fooking pub?

Being left-handed (like Leonardo DaVinci) I’m naturally a visual person. I like making pictures but as I also hate being average at anything I gave up frescoes and church interiors at an early age.

Today and pretty well every day I take stills with one of my cameras. It allows me to be slightly above average at photography.

I tried to stay off this thread as I didn’t think I had much to contribute.

But to narrow it down Sex and Beer would about cover it.
