First I would like to start out by asking this simple question: Have any of you come to find aviation photography and aviation in general boring? I ask this because lately I haven't felt that little spark, that little bit of excitedness that I used to get when I'd hop outa my car to go to the airport to fly, or even just to spot. Sometimes I try to blame it on the events of Septemeber 11, other times I try to blame it on my dad, and other times i just blame it on having started to fly myself. I'm starting to realize now though, that I can't really blame it on anyone...
While of course I don't know what other factors might be affecting you, it's entirely possible that September 11th might be contributing to your declining interest. Aviation in many ways just isn't the same as it was before. There are many reasons why: the closing of many spotting areas, the increased police surveillance - or, some might say, harrassment - of spotters, the heightened security at airports, and probably other things too.
What I'd suggest is sticking with your interest in aviation and not giving up. As time goes on, there'll be less suspicion and tension in the atmosphere and you might very well find your interest growing stronger once again. Just hang in there.
