*click* That was the sound of the camera. I didn't just take a photo, I captured a moment. It might've been those wild flowers that popped up in my backyard that summer, or that time I met that puppy on the beach, or maybe it was the time my mum was laughing in the kitchen as she was dancing while an unfamiliar song played. Photography isn't just taking pictures, it's storing a memory. Capturing a mere moment from time and space that I can hold in my hand or place on my bedroom wall. You see a camera, but I see an opportunity. An opportunity of a lifetime, that I might capture a moment that I want to relive tomorrow, or next year, or when I'm 80. Photography can change person. It makes me wish my brain were the camera and my eyes the shutter so that I might be able to store all those memories that I never had a camera for. Photography is a devotion that once started, will be difficult to stop. It's not just an avocation, it's a lifestyle.
