Why do I feel like my neighbours think I'm bonkers?

I'm desperate to go photograph my beading after the rain but the neighbours already think I've lost the plot big time!

How do you deal with other people's view of your obsession?

Doesn't everybody, to some degree anyway, care what other people think?

can't say I've ever bothered what others think about me, their opinion of me has zero bearing on my life and my decisions.

do what you want to do, go and get the beading shot (obviously post it up ) and never mind what people think..

You've got to admit. Photographing water on a car bonnet is likely to appear a little odd to the non-informed, lol. I may creep out in the hours of darkness.

"You'll rub the paint off".

"It's not even dirty"

"I'll bring mine round next".

"Are you really about to wash that again"

"Surely you must dazzle oncoming cars"

I'm sure we've heard them all. Any many more. Personally i think the 'dirty car'd mockers are the weird ones I'm perfectly normal. Well; on here at least.....
