Where do you start with this topic? I get a real buzz and sense of anticipation when planning (if I plan), taking and post-processing photographs. I get the same sensation and thrill now as when I first started over a decade ago waiting for those negs, contact sheets and slides to arrive in the post. I enjoy the academic side and obviously the practical side getting out and about improving as I go, maybe. I'm not a geek but love gadgets and devices and what I can use to get a better image or just make the experience more fun. Photography is a subject so vast it seems impossible to be bored by it but if I lose inspiration and or motivation it's not long before I pick up the camera again or attempt a new technique on an old image.
I enjoy most types of photography and try and give everything a go if I can; at the moment I'm more interested in landscapes; having said that I've recently started a new project on my local cathedral. I'm also researching how to get my image to a print of professional standard so it's a learning process too - I thought I knew how to do this but it's much more involved than I first thought. Getting that tangible large print that I'm happy with is my next goal.
Moreover, I like to look at photographs and read about photography. So, in short, if it's not a cop out, all of it.
