If you have ever spent any time listening to inspirational speakers you will know that you are supposed to have a why. Why do you do what you do? Why do you get out of bed in the morning? Why should we care? Why? Why? Why? After a while they start to sound like my three year old. But maybe they are on to something.
So after much soul searching, a bit (ok, a lot) of head scratching and immense self reflection I came up with my why and I'm going to share it with you.
Why do I do this? My photography, my life?
Simply put, it fulfils me, in every aspect, it is my happy place, but that is not all. Life is bittersweet, for all its joy there is so much hurt, for all the life there is loss and even though it lasts a lifetime, it is fleeting. I have experienced this and even though I don't always embrace life to its fullest, I understand how swiftly it passes us by. I want to capture as much of this as I can and hold on to it for as long as I can. Photography is a great way to do this (plus it makes me happy, so win-win).
I feel very passionately about the now, in all its imperfection, because I passed up the now only to find that later was ... too late.
My why is ... because why not?
