A middle-aged man wearing Speedoes and carrying a camera will always attract strange looks

I have always been struck by the comparisons between swimming, blogging and photography.

Swimming Blogging Photography
Seems easy before you start  √  √  √
Hey, hey, look at me everyone   √  √   √
Hey, I’m pretty good at this  √  √  √
Takes more time that you realise  √  √   √
Oh my god, no, I’m terrible∗   √  √   √
All is I need to buy now is just this one thing…  √  √   √
Costs more than you expect   √   √   √
Please don’t look at what I am doing   √   √
Best done in Speedoes   √   √
Looks good while wearing Speedoes  √
Actually costs waay more than you expect   √  √  √
I will never, ever, be good at this  √   √  √
Takes more time than you have  √   √  √
Just keep going  √   √  √
Wait. What was that about doing it in Speedoes?∗∗   √   √   √
