Planespotting. Many people would assume that it is a cool hobby by it's name. Plane, spot-ing. Spot planes, alright.
When you first look a this hobby, it seems like bullshit, or in a bad way, an idiot-ish thing to do.
Now in a photography world, whenever there is an object like animals or flowers or peoples or landscapes, at that time you take the moment and save it directly. We? Well, I could say that we are probably the most patient persons in the world of photography.
What we do is wait, then took, then go. When others have many chances to shoot, we have only once. It could be more than once but it may seems to be impossible, since planes changed every single time.
When others could freely shoot, we have our own challenge. All the people, including all the security guards even military persons surrounding us think that we are dangerous in the airport area.
We are doing this hobby under so many circumstances, threats etc. So this hobby is not a rubbish idea people. We do it because we have a passion. No passion, then no one will ever think that this hobby is extraordinary. We are different because we have a big passion. Example? Look at the picture. It's wet right? Any weather, burning sunny afternoon, cold raining day even freezing nighttime, we are still doing it.
Planespotting is probably not a hobby anymore, it's not a job, but it's a passion.. passion for aviation.
