I like reading (fiction and non-fiction), writing poetry (though I haven't done any for ages), watching TV, listening to music, collecting Doctor Who action figures, collecting die-cast cars, and following Formula 1.

My other main hobbies are tabletop role-playing games, board wargaming and reading. I also do a small amount of computer gaming, generally strategy games on the PC, but also the occasional first-person shooter when I'm in the mood - which is not too often these days.

Funny how the photography ties in with the other hobbies ....Ive got pics of Spitfires , Tornadoes  , Harriers and Eagles  (the birds ) , Wasps and Hornets (the insects ) and Meteors as in shooting stars...another aircraft !!
I seem to have periods where Ill do a bit of this and that but I always find that the modelling bug bites hardest  :D

I enjoy

Photography - Would Like to get into this as a career one day.
Fishing - Only just started but really enjoy sitting on a bank relaxing
Web Design - Nothing special but always enjoyed fiddling with computers.
Golf - Too expensive to get good at.

Oh and Football Manager 2011, I spend enough time playing it to call it a hobby :D

Would have many more but the fiancée will not allow it as I dont really have enough money to do all the above  :oops:

End Of Line

Used to be board wargaming, but that died out around here mostly, and I really no longer have the time it requires.

American Sports which I'm sure most of you lot have zero interest in.

Photography & collecting Nikon cameras for me. Shoot more with film than digital. Find the older cameras nicer to use.
