Your other (or only) serious hobbies

I'm interested in hobbies you pursue as seriously (or more) as your imaging work. Or, if you are a professional imager, the non-imaging hobbies you pursue seriously.

I'm a dabbler. I guess my hobby is to collect hobbies. I'll try one for a few years, til I feel I have the "gist" of it, then move to another.

Over the years I've done the following at a level I'd consider "serious":

Freshwater tropical fish
Vegetable gardening
Flower gardening
Cooking
Music composition
Backpacking
Model rocketry
Stamp collecting
Birdwatching/feeding

So far the only one that I've stuck with is flower gardening. Last year I started adding roses to my repertoire.

Less serious attempts (ie: I gave up quickly) include:

Piano
Guitar
Programming
Fiction writing

Re: Your other (or only) serious hobbies

Was a working photographer and eventually closed my studio. But that does not mean I stopped taking pictures, I do not think that old photographers every stop, they just fade away kind of like an old print.....

My hobby for the last 45 years or so is amateur (Ham) radio.
