52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History - Hobbies

52 Weeks Personal Genealogy and History

Week #38 – Hobbies

Week 38: Hobbies. Did you have any hobbies as a child? Which ones?
This challenge runs from Saturday, September 17, 2011 through Friday, September 23, 2011.

I had several hobbies when I was a kid.  I messed with electronics and chemistry sets.  I tinkered with small engines.  I liked model rockets and airplanes.  I build a number of plastic model kits.  I disassembled a number of things to see how they worked.  Always old, unneeded things, like old TVs or lawn mowers.

I liked to read a lot.  I read science books when I was younger, then in about 7th grade discovered science fiction and fantasy.

I did some photography, when I could wheedle the cost of film and processing out of my folks, or during summer school when it was part of the class I took.  I even did some cinematography with 8mm and Super 8mm cameras, and some TV studio work (also through summer school).

Out of all of that and other things I've no doubt forgotten, I still read a lot, and I still do photography, though all digital still photographs now.
