I've always had a hard time drawing. Stick figures and odd shapes were the best I could produce. I'd resort to the odd sketch and writing describing what's going on in the stuff on the page. It wasn't soon that I turned to photography. Architecture was my first subject when I started taking pictures now I'm learning how to take photos of people and I absolutely love it. It's something you can't put into words or explain.
Ultimately photography is both time travel and a time capsule. You get to view loved ones who have passed and see places and things that have changed over time or look exactly the same. Photography is important to understanding what people think and feel and gives them the opportunity to create and express in real time.
