Making a Difference

Why are you are photographer? Is it for the money? Is it just a hobby?  Maybe just to pass the time or perhaps to help you relax and get away from the daily job?  Hopefully in the end there is something about it that makes you feel good about what you are doing.

Ive sat in my basement studio photographing water drops, flowers, fire and all sorts of things, but I get not true joy out if it. It all seems lifeless... and when you think about it, it is.  Nothing about that drives me to want to do more.  Even spending the day hiking up a mountain or walk local trails, although fun and possibly exciting at the time,  is rather lack-luster when the day is over.

I have found the photography that makes me feel best about the time I am spending is when I can make a difference in someone else's life.
