    Your favorite hobby(s)

    Post  HPCrazy on Mon Aug 10, 2009 9:22 pm

    I don't remember us having something in the past where we can discuss our favorite hobbies. So I thought we should have one here.

    Of course one of my #1 favorite hobbies is roller coasters and theme parks.

    Other than that, I really enjoy art (love doing colored pencil). People and structures are my speciality.

    I also enjoy photography. I absolutely love my digital camera. Besides taking hundreds of pictures at parks when I visit them, I also enjoy taking pics of other things, like farms, structures, people, and scenery.

    What are your favorite hobbies, things to do in your spare time?

    I love this topic. bounce Haha.

    Well, I guess you can check my profile where I list my favorite hobbies. But I'll make a post of them too.

    Like HPCrazy, Amusement parks and roller coasters are up there. I don't really have them numbered, as my hobbies find equal time in my life. : P

    Another one of my hobbies is fishing, which I've mentioned before. I absolutely love fishing. Don't ask why, but I just grew up in a fishing area. I enjoy catching any type of fish.

    I also like things that have to do with industry. I've been around and worked around hydraulics and pumps and such, and I enjoy seeing how things work. That leads me to my interest in construction and engineering, where I also like architecture and making designs and diagrams like that.

    I also have a love for photography. I love my camera too. Very Happy Just capturing moments in time and photographing memories. Also taking pictures of things for later reference and stuff. Film making, like stop motion I enjoy too.

    I have a love for football - being my favorite sport, hiking and walking.

    Technology-wise, I like computers and their components, software, and just trying different things out with programs etc..

    Oh, and I also enjoy model building and constructing things.

    Long post.

    Right now the main thing is bowling. I enjoy it more than theme parks just because you get to meet new people, have fun, and practice to improve your skill.

    My 2nd hobby is riding roller coasters. I like trying out new rides and watching them be built and figuring out how they work.

    I'm not into photography especially at theme parks. When I go to a park, it is to live the memory; not try to capture the memory and try to re-live it later. I feel that once you have a photo of something there's no need to keep taking photos of the same thing. I do take photos, but it's only 20 to 40 pictures.

    Another thing right now is creating K'nex roller coasters. Right now I have 40,000+ pieces which is enough to break the world record for tallest k'nex coaster. Will I break the record?.....Maybe. Rolling Eyes

    I hope you do break the record! That would be great Exclamation

    I too don't just go to amusement parks to just take pictures- I enjoy the park as well. But, what if you are trying to remember something and how it looked before? That's what photographs and videos are for. How would we know how the World's Fair or defunct places looked when they operated (just to stay in the theme of amusement parks)?

    But, you're right. Live the memory when you have the chance, not try and save it and re-living it. Photographs are good in certain yet many situations. Smile

    I think photographs are nice especially when a park either changes an area or removes a ride. For example, look at Founder's Circle pre-2005 and Midway pre-Boardwalk. Now look at those areas now. I look at my pictures from back in those days and remember how the different the atmosphere was (especially in Midway).

    I usually don't try to let taking pictures take over a trip (even if it's not to a park) so I do enjoy myself, but that's just me and I love photography, that's all.

    True, photographs are great for remembering how things once were. We would never know about what the past looked like (besides drawings) if not for photography. Taking pictures is also a great way to keep yourself entertained.

    Well, I'm in Cedar Cliff Marching Band, and it's really been fun so far. I'm in the pit, so I don't march, which means I can't really complain about being hot or tired or anything like that. We can, however, complain once it starts to get cold. I also like to write, draw and mess around on my keyboard. I can't really read music, but I can tell if something is off pitch.

    Well, I'm not that bad at drawing, but there is plenty of room for improvement. I am taking Art, though.

    Boy, you and I have alot in common. I also like drawing out diagrams, maps, and such. I can get very down to the littlest detail when it comes to such a thing.

    That would be great and also be a time to actually be able to do some of our common interests. Idea
    With the topic, I haven't really made any maps recently, though I might get started on one.

    Well just keep us informed over at the "Meet-up" topic and let us know what's going on. Even if it's just you (and your family, parents, siblings, whoever - lol), me, Stormwinder and Alex, that would be wonderful!

    What kind of maps do you enjoy making?

    Will do! Smile

    I like making maps of areas near me, places I've been, building diagrams, etc.. (and sometimes park maps, though not as extensive as yours!) Very Happy
