{Find My Eye} Why do I take photos?

Why do I take photos? What draws me to photography? What are my motivations? What keeps me excited and interested? Consider all of the reasons and motivations you have for taking photos, both internal and external. “Internal” are the personal – YOU only – reasons that you take photos while “external” are the reasons you might take photos for, or because of, other people (family, friends, kids, colleagues, blog readers, flickr friends, etc).

Why do I take photos? Because it's FUN :) mouseover this picture...

very fun indeed! I have tutorial on how to do a mouse over but have not had the time to try it. I feel bad for you with your illness, photography is a great way to take our minds off problems of everyday life sometimes.

Hi Ana,
This shot is truly fun! And I'm with you on the fun part. Love photography for that. So sorry to hear that you aren't well. Hope the meds help.
Take care.

Very clever!

I need to learn to let go and have fun myself. I hope that I can find that free spirit in photography

Oh Ana, That IS fun! I feel like learning to do mouseovers AND also getting on a swing myself.
I've looked at most of your other photos in your photostream, and it's obvious that you love photography. It must be very frusrating to be too tired at times, so I hope you'll be feeling better soon.

p.s. I don't know how you managed to become so fluent in English. I've been working on Spanish and at one time French for years and still have a long way to go.
