I've had a lot of time on my hands lately, and at times resort to thinking. So, why are all of you here on DA? What motivates you to go out and take pictures or write or whatever else? What are you trying to accomplish?
Anyway, I just started to think about questions like that and thought I'd ask all of you.
For me, I'm here on DA because it inspires me to be better. Plus, if I didn't have other photographers work to view, I might start to think that my work was amazing. Gotta have some way of keeping me humble.
Now why do I take pictures instead of paint or play an instrument or something else? Hmm...maybe it's because I think I have a natural talent for it. I know that there is a lot that I still need to learn, but I have much more aptitude for photography than any other art form. Plus it's a great way to individualize the world and express it in a way people might not see otherwise.
Let me know what you think about this. And if you haven't ever thought about it, maybe you should. (And then tell me)
