Past Tenses

I got bit by the photography bug when I was in high school. I use to tell people I was addicted to photography and if I went a few days without taking a photograph I would have withdrawal symptoms. Most of the photography I have done for the last 40 years has been done to fulfill other peoples photos needs. Towards the end of my career as a commercial photographer I did get burnt out. Now that I am retired look forward to trying to find the passion I had when I started in my own work.
