Ask HN: What are your hobbies?
9 points by leonagano 4 months ago | hide | past | web | favorite | 5 comments



Photography, with my ever-changing collection of vintage cameras (I still have a real darkroom).

Cycling, which I can combine with the above (I usually bring a camera on my rides).

I own a clarinet, which I 'play' in the sense that sounds come out of it that occasionally resemble music.

I like to cook, and bake, though I'm not sure that counts as a hobby, as it needs to happen anyway.

Like presumably most of the people here, I spend a good chunk of my day staring at screens of various sorts, so I like to be able to do things that get me away from that.


Ham Radio - I like CW ("Continuous Wave" which usually employs an on/off keyer and Morse Code), QRP (seeing how far away you can reach someone with minimum possible power) and modern digital mesh networks like APRS and AREDN

Guitar - I have a nylon string (acoustic, Flamenco style with low action) and like to play Bossa Nova and Jazz

Exploring - anything and anywhere new


Martial Arts - Tae Kwon Do

Guitar - Jazz, Classic Rock, Metal, Blues

Bread Baking - enjoy making several different kinds of breads by hand from scratch.

Candy Making - I'm "famous" amongst my circle of friends for the caramels I make. I'm particularly fond of my toffee and nut brittle and my marshmallows are out of this world.


Cycling, Photography, Backpacking, Mountaineering, Cooking and Bread Baking.

I'm actually surprised others here bake bread. I assumed it was pretty rare.


Tennis - it's been a while since I last played

Coffee - Coffee addicted and like find out new roasters/beans
