Reasons

There are probably hundreds of reasons people have told me not to be a photographer, and every time I try to weigh them against each other but all I can think about is how much I love seeing my camera focus in on something just to capture it. Flowers, people, rocks, animals, it’s all the same to me- sorry you think that rock isn’t interesting? Let me put a filter on it, or splash a little water to get an action shot then we’ll see what’s not interesting about that rock.

I love to take photos of my Best Friend with her head thrown back laughing, it makes me happy to tag her in photos where she looks happy. Giving someone a photos they didn’t know I snapped at that moment gives me more joy than buying them dinner or a random present ever could- just knowing they have that little snippet of time captured forever is so, for lack of a better word, cool.

People tell me how bad of an idea it is to become a photographer but I think it’s a worse idea to lose a passion, we don’t have a lot of say in this world about what we love it’s just a feeling in your bones, what we do have a lot of say in is if we let people get to us and give up said passion or not.

I love photography so I’m going to keep at it, and I love to sail so I’m going to find a way to always sail, and I’d like it if people would stop telling me what I can and can not do. I am not unable to do it, you just think it’s not a good idea.
