Scottsdale Arizona and Why Photography Matters

 I really liked the list in the link above but he missed a couple of things in the list, at least for me. The first is that the  process itself makes me an active observer.

The second is that sometimes when I go back through my image files I rediscover something and relive my adventure in Arizona all over again.  I'm not sure I agree with Number 4. What makes a person an artist goes way beyond clicking a button on a camera and taking a picture. I do like Number 5 in regards to depression. Photography was my lifesaver when I was fighting a deeply painful period in my life. Photography made me get out of the studio to explore and rediscover the joy of living and this amazing world.
